Government bowed down in talks with farmers: Center is not ready to implement agriculture law for one and half year, farmers will reply to this proposal on January 22

Posted on 21st Jan 2021 02:16 pm by rohit kumar

In the 11th round of talks with the farmers, the government looked somewhat bowed down. The Center on Wednesday gave two proposals to the farmer leaders. The Center proposed to the farmers that agricultural laws will not be enforced for a year and a half and they are ready to present an affidavit in this regard in the court. Besides, a new committee will be formed to negotiate the MSP. The committee will give its opinion, then the MSP and laws will be decided.


However, farmer leaders are adamant about the withdrawal of laws. The next meeting between the farmers and the government will be held on 22 January and the farmers will give their reply to the proposal in this meeting. The farmers have made it clear that there will be a tractor rally on 26 January.


Agriculture Minister said - hope for solution in 22 January meeting

Narendra Singh Tomar said, 'There have been many soft and hot rounds of talks. Our proposal has been taken seriously by the farmers. I think there is a possibility of a solution on the 22nd. We have proposed to the farmers, because the movement is over and the farmers who are in trouble, go to their homes. The committee formed by the Supreme Court is doing its work. The government also has direct responsibility for the conditions created by the farmers and the peasant movement and under this we are moving the process forward. India's democracy will win when the agitation ends and the farmers return home.


Farmers object to NIA's action

In Vigyan Bhavan, when Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal started talking to the leaders of 40 farmer organizations, the farmers only raised the demand for withdrawal of the law. During the lunch, the farmers said that the government is not negotiating our major demands. When we talked about the discussion on MSP, the Center raised the issue of laws. Farmer leaders also opposed sending notices on behalf of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to the people associated with the movement. The organizations said that the NIA is being used to harass farmers. On this, the government replied that if you see such an innocent farmer, then you give a list, we will see this matter immediately.

Expert committee's first meeting with farmers tomorrow

On Tuesday, 3 members of the committee formed by the Supreme Court to resolve the issue of agricultural laws held the first meeting in Delhi. It considered further processing, how and when meetings would be held, how to take suggestions, and to prepare reports. According to the committee, on January 21, the committee will meet with farmer organizations. Farmers who will not come will also visit them. A portal has been created for taking online suggestions. Farmers' suggestions will be taken by 15 March.
