New Delhi: The farmers’ agitation against the three agricultural laws made by the PM Modi government continues even on the 60th day. There were 11 rounds of talks between government and farmer organizations to find a middle ground, but the result was a cipher. The date for the next meeting has not been decided yet.
The government has asked for a 2-year moratorium on the agricultural laws, but farmers are not allowed anything less than the cancellation. Farmers’ organizations are adamant about holding a tractor parade on January 26 (Republic Day).
At the same time, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has given a big statement. He has said that farmers only demand the repeal of agricultural laws, while they do not discuss its benefits. Narendra Tomar said that there is an invisible force that wants this issue not resolved, when the Agriculture Minister was asked the name of those forces, he did not say anything clearly. Narendra Tomar said that on the very next day of talks, the tone of the farmers’ changes.
Explain that there were 11 rounds of talks between the central government and the farmers’ organizations regarding agricultural laws, but no solution was found. The government, while maintaining its stand, bluntly told the farmers that there is no scope left now. The farmers consider once more and reply to Sakar. Vigyan Bhawan of Delhi is not empty for the next meeting.
Meanwhile, Rakesh Tikait, president of the Bharatiya Kisan Union, has said that the farmers have not accepted the government’s proposal. The problem will be solved only if the government repeals all three agricultural laws. Farmers’ organizations will take out a tractor parade on the occasion of Republic Day, till the problem is solved, the farmers will stay here. He said that the government also wants farmers to be puppets of industrialists, which is not acceptable.
