Union Home Minister Amit Shah expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday for the passage of two crucial bills on agricultural reforms in the Lok Sabha and said the proposed legislations will free farmers from the clutches of middlemen and help them overcome other obstacles.

In a series of tweets in Hindi, Shah said the country is proud of its hardworking farmers, who shoulder the creation of the nation's wealth and prosperity.

He said in the form of the Modi government, for the first time, there is a government at the Centre which is working day and night towards the empowerment of farmers and the passage of the landmark agricultural reform bills in the Lok Sabha on Thursday is an "unprecedented step" in this direction.
