Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address farmers of Madhya Pradesh in a ‘Kisan Kalyan Sammelan’ in a virtual medium today amidst the ongoing impasse between the farmers and the government.
It is being told that this program will be shown in 23,000 villages of the country and all district headquarters of Madhya Pradesh.
According to a statement released on Thursday by the office of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan, this program will start via video conferencing at two in the afternoon.
The government says that through such conferences, it will inform the farmers about the benefits under the agricultural laws.
According to All India Radio, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan will also participate in the state-level main event organized in Raisen. It has been told that in other districts, the Minister of State will distribute relief money to the farmers during this program and such programs will be organized at the block and rural levels as well.
It has been claimed that around one thousand farmers from every district will participate in this conference.
The protests of farmers against agricultural laws are continuing on 23rd day. Even after several levels of dialogue between the farmers and the government, no consensus has been reached.
The issue of farmers’ protests is not just about the road, but the Supreme Court is also hearing on this. On Thursday, a petition related to the farmers’ movement was heard in the Supreme Court, in which the court has asked the central government to consider not implementing agricultural laws temporarily till the completion of the hearing of the case.
In response, the counsel for the Central Government said that this cannot be done. In this case, Chief Justice said, “Do not say anything in advance and consider the advice. Meanwhile, notice should also be issued to farmers’ organizations. “
Several petitions have been filed in the Supreme Court regarding the farmers’ movement, demanding immediate removal of the farmers who are protesting on the borders of Delhi. The petitions have said that the fundamental rights of the people living in the capital Delhi are being violated due to the protests by the farmers.
On this, the Supreme Court said that it is the fundamental right of the farmers to protest – as long as they do not harm property or life. The case will now be heard next week during the winter holidays. The court has said that the petitioners can go to the court bench if they want.
Due to the protest against the agricultural laws, the central government is also trying its best to convey its message to the people. On Thursday, the country’s Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has written an open letter to the farmers, in which he has appealed to the farmers of Punjab and Haryana to avoid ‘spreading confusion’, while enumerating the merits of the new agricultural law.
