Farmers Protest: The strike of the farmers of Punjab-Haryana-Uttar Pradesh, which is on the borders of Delhi, continues on the 11th day. These farmers are angry with the new agricultural laws and want the government to withdraw these laws.
After the fifth round of talks between the farmer leaders and the government on Saturday remained inconclusive, now the farmer leaders have said that ‘India will be closed on December 8 as per the plan’.
The Modi government is saying that farmers will be given a solution to their doubts. But the farmers are not listening to this argument of the government now. They say that they will accept the appeal of Bharat Bandh and take part in it.
Farmers Protest: On Saturday, about five hours long talks were held at Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi. In this meeting, the government assured the farmers that “the agricultural laws will not affect the MSP, it is a state subject and the central government will not affect the mandis of the states in any way.”
He had asked the farmers to end the agitation due to the cold and covid-19 and send the elderly and children home.
It has been told that the representatives of the farmers will now hold the next stage of talks with the central leadership on Wednesday.
