Farmer leaders have said that they will start returning to their homes from December 11. The leaders say that on January 15, they will once again review the situation and if the central government does not fulfill the promises, then they will agitate again.

Farmer leaders said that "United Kisan Morcha will hold a review meeting on January 15, if the central government does not agree with the things, then the movement will start again."

Last month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi decided to withdraw three controversial agriculture laws, giving hope to end the agitation.

During this, Yogendra Yadav said, "From December 11, wherever farmers are sitting on dharna in the whole country, they will be raised." "Farmers have regained their lost self-respect, farmers have created unity, farmers have realized political power," he said.

On this occasion, farmer leader Gurnam Singh Chaduni said, "There will be a review every month. If the government denies its promise, we will launch an agitation. Farmer leader Darshan Pal Singh said that "From December 11, farmers will start returning to their homes."
