Farmers Centre 11th round of meeting: Day after the farmer leaders announced that they have rejected the Central government’s proposal for suspending farm laws 2020, the Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Friday asked farmers to reconsider the proposal.
A day before the 11th round of meeting between the farmers and Centre, the farm leaders had issued a statement in which they stated that they reject the proposal for suspending farm laws 2020. The farmers are adamant on their demand to get these laws repealed while Narendra Singh Tomar has been asking them to find an alternate way.
Earlier in the day, SS Pandher, Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee, had said that “Govt’s strategy was to throw a net at us, to hide poison inside sweets. They want to end protests somehow. In our meeting, it was unanimously decided that we reject their proposal.”
“In today’s meeting, we will discuss MSP and repeal of the three farm laws,” Pandher added.
Likewise, Hannan Mollah, All India Kisan Sabha Gen Sec, had said that there wasn’t much expectation. “Govt made proposals which we took to leadership and general body. After discussion almost unitedly they rejected proposals. Govt must understand the movement’s mood and work accordingly.”
Meanwhile, farmers are all set for the Tractor march on Republic Day 2021. The farmers made it clear to Delhi Police that they will hold a tractor march on Delhi Outer ring road while the police asked them not to carry a march inside the national capital.
The farmers’ protest at Delhi borders entered 57th day against the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
