Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh addressed the people of Himachal Pradesh via video-conferencing on completion of three years of Chief Minister Jairam Thakur-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state. Defence Minister Singh said, "The income of farmers will double with the enactment of farm laws. It takes some time to see the impact of comprehensive reforms. I appeal to farmers to see changes in the next one and a half years (1.5-2 years)." "Otherwise, we can improve them (laws) through talks," he added.
