Updates

  • Indian Farmers Union spokesman Rakesh Tikait said that 60 farmers had lost their lives during the agitation so far. Every 16 hours a farmer is dying. Government accountability is created.
  • Reliance Jio’s towers and offices in Punjab and Haryana were severely vandalized in the past in support of the peasant movement. In such a situation, Reliance filed an application in the Punjab-Haryana High Court on Monday. The company said that the government should stop meddling immediately.
  • Joint Secretary Sukhwinder Singh of Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Samiti, Punjab has said that if the demands of withdrawal of agricultural laws and guarantee of MSP are not fulfilled, then on January 6, tractors will march.

The 2 December meeting agreed on 2 issues
1. No case will be registered for burning stubble: Now 1.Crores are fined and provision for imprisonment for 5 years. The government agreed to remove it.
2. No change in Electricity Act: Farmers fear that this law will stop electricity subsidy. Now this law will not be made.

… so the hopes of the farmers increased and the stance softened
After agreeing on 2 issues, the attitude of farmers showed softening and they postponed the tractor rally to be held on 31 December. Today these 2 important issues will be discussed.
1. The farmers are adamant on repealing all the three laws.
2. Farmers say that separate laws should be made on MSP so that they get the right price.

What hope can be found?
According to news agency sources, in today’s meeting, the big issues of farmers can also be resolved. The government can give written confidence in the issues of support price (MSP) and Agriculture Produce Market Committee (APMC). With this, such arrangements can be made that private companies are not able to buy crops in mandis at a price lower than MSP.
