LIVE: Which farmer movement will yield no solution? There will be an 11th round of talks on agricultural laws today
Farmers’ stir continues against the new agricultural laws for 58th consecutive day on Delhi’s borders. With no solution on agricultural laws, arrogance is still intact. In such a situation, the 11th round of talks is going on between the farmers’ organizations and the central government on Friday. During the 10th round of talks by Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, a proposal to postpone the implementation of the laws for a year and a half could not be reached in the Joint Kisan Morcha meeting on Thursday. It was said by the government that the implementation of the law can be protected for 1.5 years. During this time, farmers union and government can talk and find solutions. All the farmers again raised the demand to repeal the three laws and enact laws on MSP.
At the same time, on the proposal to postpone the three new agricultural laws for a year and a half, Jagjit Singh Dalewal of the Bharatiya Kisan Union said that the farmers leaders are currently in talks. He said that the reports related to the dismissal of the proposal by the farmer leaders to defer the law are wrong as we have not taken any such decision so far.
Let me tell you that earlier there were reports that during the Joint Kisan Morcha General Assembly meeting on Thursday, the proposal of the Central Government to defer the laws given by the Central Government for one and a half years has been rejected. All the farmers have approved the demand to repeal all the three laws in one phase and enact a law on MSP. Farmer leader Joginder Singh Ugrahan said that it has been decided by the Samyukta Kisan Morcha that none of the government’s proposals will be accepted until they repeal the law. In tomorrow’s meeting with the government, we will say that we have only one demand, to repeal the laws and make laws on MSP. All these have been unanimously decided.
No decision on taking out tractor parade on Republic Day
At the same time, no decision has been taken between the farmers’ organizations and the police on Thursday to take out the tractor parade on the occasion of Republic Day on 26 January in Delhi. Farmers have been agitating for the last 57 days on the borders of Delhi, demanding the repeal of agricultural laws and legal status to the minimum support price of crops, and have been adamant on taking out a parade on the capital’s Outer Ring Road on Republic Day. After the meeting, farmer leaders said that the police had persuaded them to enter the capital due to Republic Day, while they wanted a rally in Delhi. The police has proposed to take out a rally on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway to the farmers, which has been rejected by the farmers. After the meeting, farmer leader Darshan Pal told that the Delhi Police said that it is difficult to allow the Chail Parade on Outer Ring Road and the government is not ready for this but the farmers have said that they will parade on the Ring Road itself. There will be a meeting tomorrow between the police and the farmers. At the same time, farmer leader Satnam Singh Pannu said that the program on January 26 is unalterable and it will happen under any circumstances. The Delhi Police went to the Supreme Court against the traitor parade of farmers, but the court refused to give any order in this regard and said that it was under the jurisdiction of the police.
