Hear the news
One farmer said that we are engaged in sowing onions on the land here. It has been a month since we came here. What can we do here because we have no work. Land in Punjab is very expensive. It is available for free and hence we are cultivating onions.
Also said that if PM Modi does not agree to repeal the agricultural laws, we will sow onion crops all over the field. Farmers are constantly opposing agricultural laws in their own ways.
Let us tell you, farmers are continuously pressurizing the government to withdraw all the three agricultural laws on the Indus border. For this, a large number of farmers from Punjab have camped there and are sending some message to the government every day.
Many big Union ministers also appeared to talk to farmers. Which includes Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Home Minister Amit Shah but has not reached some results yet.
Meanwhile, the Samyukta Kisan Morcha, including about 40 farmer organizations, wrote a letter to the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare and accepted the Centre’s offer to negotiate and proposed the next date of meeting, 29 December.
