Backed by several parties, including trade unions, agitating Kisan leaders stand by their call for Bharat Bandh on December 8 as the Government has again rejected their demand for repealing the three farm laws assuring them adequate guarantee for continuance of foodgrains at MSP. The government has also assured them to strengthen marketing mechanisms and amend the laws to include their all concerns. As their meeting with three union ministers, including Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, continued for nearly four hours, farmer leaders told the government to reply in “black and white” that whether it will repeal the laws or not.’’ I want to request protesting farmers to give up their movement so that they don’t face inconvenience in this cold weather & citizens of Delhi can also live a life of convenience,’’ said Narendra Singh Tomar after the 5th round of talks at Vigyan Bhawan. ‘’I want to assure farmers that Modi govt remains committed to you, & will remain so in future. Under PM Modi’s leadership, several agricultural schemes have been implemented. MSP and budgetary allocation for agriculture & related sectors have been substantially increased over the years’’, Tomar added. Both sides have agreed to have dialogue again on December 9.
