The tractor rally on 31 December has been postponed by the farmers. Information about the decisions taken in the meeting will be given to the farmers present at the protest site on Thursday. Farmer leaders have also made it clear that unless the entire situation is clear in the talks with the government, the movement is not going to end.
The farmer is constantly stuck on the horoscope border. Farmer leaders say that they already knew that the government would not accept the demands of the farmers so soon. But the way the conversation has moved forward, the farmers are also ready to talk well on this.
Shamsher Singh Dahiya, national general secretary of Bhakiyoo Ambavata, said that the government has agreed to accept the farmers’ demand regarding the Electricity Amendment Bill 2020 and Parali. However, no concrete decision has been taken regarding MSP (Minimum Support Price) and three laws. There will be talks again on January 4 for this. The farmers have postponed the tractor rally, considering it a positive trend. He said that farmers are adamant about MSP and three laws and the next conversation will start from here.
The atmosphere of dialogue with the government has been restored. Some points have been agreed. Now there will be talks again on January 4. Other points will then be negotiated. Till then the farmers’ movement will continue. The process of negotiations between the farmers and the government was halted, due to which the deadlock was also greatly increased. Now if the government’s attitude is good for the farmers, then the farmers will not take tough measures. – Darshanpal, Member, United Farmers Front
Negotiations have started again between the government and the farmers. Of course, the talks have not been successful yet, but with the beginning of the dialogue with the farmers, steps have been taken to find a solution. Not much can be said about the conversation right now. The movement will continue. It is definitely that the government should solve the farmers’ problem as soon as possible. – Kalwant Singh Sandhu, farmer leader.
There is not much hope from the government, but when the farmers are talking with an open mind, then the government should also talk with an open mind. The government should solve the problem by accepting all four demands of the farmers. So that the farmer also goes to his home and the government’s troubles also end. – Gurnam Singh Chadhuni, Bhakiyoo Haryana.
