The 9th round of meeting between the government and the farmers’ organizations is also getting inconclusive.
New Delhi: Farmer’s protest against agricultural laws continued today for the 51st consecutive day. This meeting of the 9th round was also inconclusive. Now there will be discussion on 19 January.
During the meeting, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar appealed to the farmers leaders to bring flexibility in their stance. Explain that the protesting farmers are demanding the withdrawal of three new agricultural laws from the central government. At the same time, the government is talking about amending the law.
After the meeting, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that the 9th round of talks with the farmers union took place.
The government, when invited, will present its case before a committee appointed by the court.
Tomar said that the farmers unions want to continue the dialogue with the government and we have no problem with this. The committee appointed by the Supreme Court will also work for the welfare of farmers.
The Indian Farmers Union spokesman said after talking to the government, “We will talk to the government only. 2 is the only point. 3 laws of agriculture be back and talk on MSP. We will not go to the committee of the court, we will talk to the government itself.
Before the lunch break during the meeting, Food Minister Piyush Goyal responded to the farmers’ questions on the changes made in the Essential Commodities Act. Some farmer leaders did not want to hear Piyush Goyal’s answer as he said that there can be no dialogue except withdrawal of the law. However some other farmers were in favor of listening to the talks of the government.
On January 12, the Supreme Court had stayed the implementation of three new agricultural laws. Also, the court constituted a four-member committee.
These include the president of the Bharatiya Kisan Union, Bhupinder Singh Mann, the president of the Shetkari organization Maharashtra, Anil Ghanwat, Pramod Kumar Joshi of the International Food Policy Research Institute and agricultural economist Ashok Gulati.
