Protests by farmers against agricultural laws are going to intensify. A large number of farmers from different places have left for the capital Delhi on Friday.
After rejecting the proposal of the Central Government, the farmers organizations have announced to close the Delhi-Jaipur highway and make all toll points toll free, intensifying the movement.
Police have been deployed to handle the situation and provide an alternative route for the commuters.
For the last two weeks, thousands of farmers have been protesting against Delhi’s Haryana and Uttar Pradesh borders against agricultural laws.
They demand that the government cancel all three agricultural laws.
The All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee issued a statement saying, “More farmers will join the strike in Singhu, Tikri, Ghazipur and Palwal. Farmers from Tamil Nadu have reached and farmers from all over India are reaching Delhi to protest. ”
Farmers’ organizations protesting against agricultural laws have refused to give a written response to the government’s proposal for amendments to the laws.
He says that he has already rejected these amendments.
Farmers’ organizations held a press conference and said that these amendments were also discussed in the December 5 meeting, but they were rejected.
On Friday, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that the government is waiting for the farmers’ response to their proposal. These proposals were sent on Tuesday.
He hoped that this deadlock would end soon.
The agriculture minister told the news agency ANI, “I think we will find a solution. I hope. I will urge the farmers unions to end the deadlock. The government has sent him a proposal. If they have any objection to any provision of law, then it will be discussed.
Farmer organizations say that there is no need to send a written response because they have already rejected the proposal.
Darshan Pal, president of the Revolutionary Farmers Union, said, “We have not sent any letter. We rejected these proposals in the December 5 meeting. We had said that we would not discuss the amendments and demanded to answer yes or no to repeal the agricultural laws. ”
Negotiations can begin only on one condition when the government talks on the proposal to cancel the law.
The Akhil Bharatiya Kisan Sabha associated with the Left parties said that the Agriculture Minister should take responsibility for disrupting the dialogue.
The organization said, “The agriculture minister should explain why Home Minister Amit Shah interrupted the negotiation process and why he sent the proposal for amendments again, which has already been rejected.”
