Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has written a letter thrice in eight days to talk to farmers. They have also posted these letters on social media written on 17, 20 and 24 December.

Today is the 29th day of the farmers’ agitation against agricultural laws. On Thursday, the government wrote another letter and appealed to farmers to fix a day and time for talks. It is written in the letter that the government is serious about resolving the issues of farmers. The government has also made it clear that any new demand related to the Minimum Support Prize, which is outside the purview of the new agricultural laws, would not be rational to include in the negotiations.

Meanwhile, BJP’s ally and deputy CM Dushyant Chautala in Haryana government has taken a different stand. He says that many amendments are required in the laws. He said that earlier we had given many suggestions to the government and they too agreed to many of these changes. A day before that, on Wednesday itself, the farmers had rejected the previous invitation of the government. He said that the proposal of the government does not have any merit, it will be only if we bring a new agenda.

Rahul meets President in support of farmers

Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi, Ghulam Nabi Azad and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury met President Ram Nath Kovind on Thursday and appealed to intervene in the farmers’ case.

On the other hand, despite the implementation of Section 144, the police took Priyanka Gandhi and other Congress leaders into custody due to the march in support of the farmers.

Second letter of government in 5 days
The central government has written another letter to the agitating farmers. In the letter, the farmers have been asked to set the date and time for the next round of talks. Earlier, on December 20, the government had written a letter to the farmer leaders asking them to fix the time for negotiations, which the farmers had rejected on Wednesday.

Farmers bluntly – the government ignores us and is playing with fire
He turned down the proposal of talks with the government on Wednesday. The farmers said that the proposal of the government does not have any merit, it will be only then to bring a new agenda. Farmer leader Shiv Kumar Kakka said, “The government is playing with fire ignoring farmers, it should give up its insistence.”

At what point of the government’s proposal did the farmers respond?

  • Vivek Agarwal, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture sent a proposal to the farmer leader Dr. Darshanpal on 20 December. Therefore, the reply has also been sent to Darshanpal’s email to the Joint Secretary.
  • Farmers have written – you asked that our previous letter is the opinion of one man or of all organizations. Let us say that this was a reply sent with the consent of the United Front. It is not the government’s job to question it.
  • Your letter was also an attempt to discredit the movement. The government is trying to break up the movement by holding parallel talks with the alleged farmer leaders and such paper organizations, which have nothing to do with the movement.
  • The protesters are dealing with the farmers as if they are political opponents of the government and not people in distress. Your attitude is forcing protests to intensify.
  • We are surprised that the government still does not understand our demand to repeal the three laws. During several rounds of talks, it was clearly stated that such changes in the laws are not acceptable to us.
  • After rejecting the oral proposal on December 5, we were told that a concrete proposal would be sent after discussion with the government, but the proposals that were sent on December 9 were the ones discussed on December 5, which we have already rejected.
  • The proposal that you have sent about the minimum support price (MSP), does not contain any clear proposal to be responded to.
  • At the MSP, you are proposing written trust related to the current procurement system. Farmers’ organizations are demanding legal guarantee for purchase of all crops at minimum support price (C2 + 50%) as per the recommendation of the National Farmers Commission.
  • The proposal on the draft Electricity Act (Amendment) Bill is not clear. When you do not clear about the provision to discontinue cross subsidies, the answer is useless.
  • We are ready for talks and are waiting for when the government should take this discussion forward with an open mind, an open mind and a clear intention.
  • It appeals that instead of repeating the rejected proposals for useless changes, send a concrete proposal so that it can be made an agenda and the dialogue can be resumed.
