The eight round of talks in between the objecting farmers and the federal government on Friday failed to break the stalemate, and the next meeting will be hung on January15 The farmers stayed determined on their demand to repeal the Farm Acts.
” Our ‘ ghar wapsi‘ (go back to house) can occur just if you do ‘ law wapsi‘ (repeal of laws),” a farmer leader was quoted as saying after the meeting.
” Ideally, the Centre must not interfere in farming matters as various Supreme Court orders have declared farming as a state subject. It seems you (the government) do not wish to deal with the problem as talks have been happening for many days. In that case, please give us a clear response and we will go. Why waste everybody’s time,” another farmer leader said at the meeting.
All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) member Kavitha Kuruganti, who was also present in the meeting, stated the federal government has actually told unions that it can not and will not reverse these laws. Around one hour after the conference, the three ministers stepped out of the conversation hall for their own internal assessments, after union leaders decided to observe silence while holding out papers with slogans including ‘ Jeetenge ya Marenge‘ (We will either win or die).
