New Delhi: The BJP on Friday lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement to repeal the three farm laws as a "statesmanlike" move that will further the atmosphere of brotherhood across the country.

Home Minister Amit Shah said what is unique about Modi's announcement is that he picked the special day of 'Guru Purab' to make this.

"It also shows there is no other thought except the welfare of each and every Indian for him. He has shown remarkable statesmanship," he said.

Several BJP leaders also quoted a part of Modi's address to the nation to suggest that his decision to scrap the laws, dubbed as a defeat for the government, was driven by national interest.

Quoting last Sikh Guru Gobind Singh, Modi had wished that he never back down from doing good work and said whatever he is doing is for the country.

"Whatever I did, I did for the farmers and whatever I am doing, I am doing for the country. With your blessings, there was no deficiency in my hard work even earlier. Today I assure you that I will work harder now so that your dreams can come true, the dreams of the country can come true," the prime minister said.

Shah tweeted, "PM Narendra Modi announcement relating to the farm laws is a welcome and statesmanlike move. As the Prime Minister pointed out in his address, the Government of India will keep serving our farmers and always support them in their endeavours."

The prime minister has shown remarkable statesmanship, he said.

Welcoming the announcement, BJP president J P Nadda noted that it was made on the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev.

Modi has shown that he has immense care for farmers, and this decision will further the atmosphere of brotherhood across the nation, he said.

Another senior party leader and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said Modi took the big decision in farmers' interests and to respect their sentiments.

The decision shows his sensitivity towards farmers' welfare, he added.
