It is not yet clear when the demonstration of the farmers on the borders of Delhi will end, but on Wednesday, the central government has made an important proposal regarding the demands of the farmers.
According to a report published in The Indian Express newspaper, during the 10th round meeting between the farmers and the government on Wednesday, the central government has proposed to suspend agricultural laws for 18 months in front of the representatives of the farmers.
The farmers have refused to appear before the committee of experts set up by the Supreme Court, on which the central government has proposed to form a joint committee between the farmers and the representatives of the government.
With the law suspended for a year and a half, this committee will listen to the problems of the farmers and make a report
Both sides have agreed to the next phase of meeting on Friday. Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, who is talking to the farmers on behalf of the central government, has said that he hopes that a solution will be found on this matter on 22 January.
On the other hand, the farmers have not even rejected the government’s proposal. The farmers, who are demanding the cancellation of the three agricultural laws, say that they will discuss this proposal on Thursday.
Kulwant Singh Sandhu, general secretary of the Jamhuri Kisan Sabha, was involved in a conversation between farmers and the government on Wednesday. He said that the ministers have proposed not to implement the laws for 18 to 24 months and the affidavit related to it will also be filed in the Supreme Court.
