The sixth round of talks between the Central govt and the Indian farmers?

The sixth round of talks between the Central govt and the Indian farmers?

The stalled dialogue between the center and agitating farmers' organizations is going to happen again on Wednesday. On the other hand, the protesting farmers' organizations said that the discussion will only be on the modalities to repeal the three agricultural laws and give a legal guarantee of minimum support price (MSP). This is the sixth round of talks between the Central govt and the Indian farmers, Union ministers Narendra Singh Tomar and Piyush Goyal met senior BJP leader and Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday. Agriculture Minister  Narendra Singh Tomar,  Goyal(Food and Consumer Affairs Minister), and  Som Prakash(Minister of State for Commerce and Industry) have been representing the Center in talks with farmers.

Negotiations first address the government of farmers

In a letter to the Center on Tuesday, the United Kisan Morcha, representing the Kisan Morcha, said that the issue of repeal of three agricultural laws and legal guarantee of minimum support price (MSP) should be part of the main agenda of farmers. The Front further stated that the agenda of the meeting should include amendments to the ordinance issued concerning the Air Quality Management Commission in NCR and adjoining areas to keep farmers out of punitive provisions.

Through the letter, the Morcha has formally accepted the central govt. invitation to negotiate. The letter withdrawing the Electricity Amendment Bill 2020 should be included in the negotiating agenda to protect the interests of farmers. So far, five rounds were held on 5 December. The sixth round of talks was to take place on 9 December but was canceled earlier, when an informal meeting between Home Minister Shah and some leaders of farmer organizations failed to yield any success.

Tractor march tomorrow

In the wake of negotiations with the government, farmer organizations have postponed their proposed tractor till March. The farmers said that after Wednesday's meeting with the government, they will discuss further strategies. More than thousands of farmers of different states of the country most of them from Punjab, Haryana, and near Delhi border farmers of the country have been protesting at the Singhu border, Tikri Border, and Ghazipur border near Delhi since the last 31 days. They want just all three agricultural laws should be repealed. So please support the farmers they are the backbone of our country. #standwithfarmers
