Farmers’ protest: Centre to satisfy farmer leaders on Thursday for important round of talks
The Centre is set up to meet the representatives of objecting farmers on December 3 for a vital round of talks over the agricultural laws passed previously this year. A comparable meeting that took place on December 1 failed to make any development.
Farmers, particularly from Punjab and Haryana, have been agitating over these laws considering that they were passed. They headed towards New Delhi recently to register their protest and require their repeal from the main federal government.
The conference in between the federal government and the leaders is set up to happen at the Vigyan Bhavan at 12 twelve noon. The farmer leaders would leave from the Singhu border by bus between 9 am and 10 am. A minimum of 35 farmer organisations will be represented in this meeting.
Ahead of these vital talks, House Minister Amit Shah on December 2 met Farming Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Train Minister Piyush Goyal to go over strategies to eliminate farmers’ concerns.
Reports suggest that police previously shifted the farmers from the Noida border to the Dr Ambedkar Boneyard in Noida.
After the meeting with the government, the farmer leaders are expected to come together at the Singhu border to discuss their method. Certain farmers stated that they would come to Delhi if there are no results by 2 pm.
Farmers are presently opposing at four busy border points of Delhi– Ghazipur, Noida, Singhu, and Tikri– under heavy authorities implementation, as part of their ‘Delhi Chalo’ movement.
As on December 3, farmers have put up camping tents on the route from Delhi to Noida also. Azad Samaj Party leader Chandrashekhar Azad Ravan is slated to meet the farmers at the Singhu border at 10 am.
” The Centre must call an unique session of Parliament to repeal the brand-new farm laws. We will continue our agitation till these laws are reversed,” Krantikari Kisan Union president Darshan Pal stated, after a conference of around 35 farmer organisations.
He blamed the Centre for attempting to produce departments in between farmers by projecting the current demonstrations as Punjab-centric. He added that agents of organisations from other states would be included under the Kisan Samyukt Morcha to choose their strategy.
Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait told press reporters that the Centre need to rescind the 3 farm laws and turn Minimum Assistance Price (MSP) policy into law.
On the matter of a committee proposed by the Centre, he said, “There are just a lot of committees in the nation. There have been numerous committee reports in the past however they don’t lead to anything. Committees are developed essentially to prevent an uprising. I have belonged to the farmers’ movement for almost 30 years, so I understand that much.”
The objecting farmers demanded that the Centre bring in a special session of the Parliament to repeal these laws and stated that they would otherwise take more actions consisting of road obstructions in Delhi.
The All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC), the pinnacle body of transporters, extended support to the farmers and said that it would end operations in north India from December 8 if the federal government failed to deal with the issues of the farmers.
Farmers from Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand have also participated in at specific border points. The farmers were there in spite of dealing with huge losses back home, a protestor told Zee News.
They continued with their agitation in spite of the cold and stated that they were gotten ready for a long haul and would not leave before their demands were accepted.
The 3 questionable farming laws in question are the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promo and Assistance) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Arrangement on Rate Guarantee and Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Vital Commodities (Amendment) Act 2020.
