Prabhakar Mishra, New Delhi: Today is the 44th day of the farmers’ agitation against agricultural laws, but no final solution has been found so far.
A meeting between the farmers organization and the central government is to be held once again at 2 pm today, but before the meeting, farmer leader Rakesh Tikait has expressed fear that no solution will be found even today.
Rakesh Tikait said that the government will make a new proposal today and the meeting will end there itself. He said that the issue will need at least three more meetings between the government and farmers to come back on track.
“When we came here, we had said that the government would take 40 days to resolve the issue. Now it seems that the government will resolve the issue within 60 days. The government will try to resolve the matter before January 26,” Rakesh Tikait said.
However, all kinds of efforts are being made by the government to end the agitation. The government has given Baba Lakkha Singh a proposal to the farmers. In which it has been said that all the three agricultural laws should be left to the state government.
In the seventh round of talks between the farmers and the government on December 30, two issues were agreed upon, but 2 more issues are yet to be resolved.
These 2 issues are yet to be resolved
A large number of farmers have been blocking different borders of Delhi since November 26, demanding the repeal of the new agricultural laws. The farmers have blockaded many border points connecting Delhi to Uttar Pradesh and Haryana including Singhu, Tikri, Palwal and Ghazipur.
Till now eight rounds of negotiations have been held between the government and the farmers, but all the efforts have been inconclusive.
At present, there is no solution to the issue. Negotiations also took place between the government and the farmers, but all efforts were inconclusive. The farmers are demanding complete removal of three new agricultural laws.
The farmers’ organizations are not willing to scale down their demands of a repeal of the agricultural laws and guarantee for the minimum support price (MSP) system.
