Regarding the non-political nature of the movement, Pawar said that on the very first day the farmers had made it clear that they do not want to join any political organization in this movement.
On the other hand, after the meeting, Yechury said, ‘I met Sharad Pawar. It was a courtesy meeting. We discussed the farmers’ movement. Opposition parties are worried about the situation, we are waiting for the results of their meeting on December 30 and will then decide further.
Let me tell you that for more than a month, thousands of farmers have been demonstrating on different borders of the capital of the country, New Delhi. Farmers are demanding withdrawal of the new agricultural laws of the Center. If the demand is not met, he has warned to intensify the movement in the coming days. At the same time, the central government is not giving any indication of withdrawal of these laws.
