Tractor rally postponed; Leaders say farmers’ strike will continue Farmers Protest

by time news

The farmers’ tractor rally scheduled to be held in Parliament on Monday has been postponed. The decision comes as the bill to repeal controversial agricultural laws is being tabled in Parliament on the same day. If the government is not ready to discuss the demands, including the minimum support price, the joint Kisan Morcha meeting on December 4 will decide on further strike action.

Meanwhile, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has made it clear that legislation for the minimum support price will not be forthcoming. The decision of the organizations to temporarily withdraw from the agitation was taken after the government gave in to the main demand of the farmers to withdraw the controversial agricultural laws.

The Prime Minister and the Minister of Agriculture announce the decisions unilaterally without consulting the farmers. The meeting also protested the non-response to a letter written by farmers to the Prime Minister raising six demands, including the minimum support price. Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has said that the farmers’ demand has been accepted with the formation of the committee for minimum support price and zero budget farming. He said it was up to the state governments to decide on the withdrawal of cases against the protesters and compensation.

He wrote a letter to the Prime Minister showing six demands and received no reply. The Kisan Morcha said that this method was not right and the government was not ready for talks.
