On Thursday, the seven-hour conversation between the diplomats of the farmers’ bodies and the Union government finished without any infiltration. The next round of negotiations has been programmed for 5th December.
According to the sources, the farmers have given their suggestions to the Government in writing. The day before, around 34 farmer leaders forwarded a five point set of demands to frame a specific law on minimum support price. The end of the punishment provided for stubble burning, during the fourth round of talks with the Central Government.
In the five points set demands given in writing, the most robust demand is abolishing the three contentious farm laws passed in September during the Monsoon Session of the Parliament.
The farmers indicated that the provision to register a case for stubble burning should be ended. The farmers even demanded answers from the Government for not providing or giving them any written insurance on MSP, notwithstanding its earlier statements that MSP will continue.
The farmers’ union representatives emphasised that a new emphasis framed in a special session of Parliament will guarantee MSP in a long-term process. The farmers’ union representatives said that the Government stated the three farm laws were brought in, keeping the farmers’ interests in mind. The farmers believe the farm laws have been passed to serve big businesses and corporate houses.
Even the Farmer Leaders At Talks Refuse Government’s Lunch Offer.
The 34 farmer union leaders also set up a separate food stall in Vigyan Bhawan, and most of them sat on the floor to eat their lunch.
