Surjit Singh Phool on Farmers’ protest: Amid a complete deadlock between the farmers and the Centre, the Samyukta Kisan Morcha is likely to constitute a 9-member committee for further meetings with the Central government.
During an exclusive conversation with PTC News, the farmer leader Surjit Singh Phool revealed that the Samyukta Kisan Morcha was mulling over the decision to constitute a 9-member committee.
Balbir Singh Rajewal, Dr Darshan Pal, Jagjit Singh Dallewal, Gurnam Singh Charuni, Yoginder Yadav, Hannan Mollah, Shiv Kumar Kakka, Yudhvir Singh and Joginder Ugrahan could be the members of the committee.
Surjit Singh Phool revealed that the 32 farmers’ organisations have agreed to it. PTC News talked to 5 farm leaders including Surjit Phool, Ruldu Singh Mansa, and Jangvir Singh. These leaders stated that the farmers’ organisations have agreed to the decision.
The committee might get access to hold further talks with the government. Ruldu Singh Mansa said that he did not want to constitute a 9-member committee but some decision goes with a majority.
Since November 26, farmers have been camping at various border points.
Amid farmers’ protest, 11 rounds of talks were held between farmers and those of the central government but all of them remained unsuccessful. Farmers have been adamant about the repeal of farm laws while the Centre has been asking farmers to reconsider the laws and discuss the doubts clause-wise.
