Agriculture BJP Life Style North India Protest

Fifth meeting failed after Farmers complaints of government lacklustre response

Fifth round of talks between farmers’ leaders and BJP govt fails, but next meeting scheduled on December 9 .
 
“The government already knows what our demands and objections are. We have given them the same in writing also. What else do they want to talk about?” said a leader who was part of the delegation of representatives of 35 farmers’ organizations.
 
Prior meeting Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar met Indian PM Modi and Amit Shah and after the meeting reiterated,
 
“We have said that the MSP will continue, there is no threat to it. It is baseless to doubt this. Still, if someone is suspicious then the government is ready to resolve it. ”
 
“I would not like to comment on the program of the unions. But I would like to urge farmers and the unions to leave the path of agitation and come to the path of discussion.
 
Govt has had several rounds of talks with them and is ready for further discussion for a solution,” added Tomar.
 
But farmers unions made sarcastic response to BJP Government for their delay and dilly dally tactics .
 
Farmers’ group went on a ‘maun vrat’ (vow of silence) during their fifth round of talks with the government and sought a reply in ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on their key demand of repealing the three new farm laws, union leaders said.
 
As their meeting with three union ministers, including Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, continued for nearly four hours, farmer leaders told the government to reply in “black and white” that whether it will repeal the laws or not.
“Farmer union leaders are sitting on a ‘maun vrat’,” Punjab Kisan Union leader Ruldhu Singh said.
 
Kavitha Kuruganti of AIKSCC (All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee) said the government was not responding to the pinpointed question of farmer leaders.
 
Gurlabh Singh Mahal, legal advisor to Punjab Kisan Union, also said the farmer leaders wanted the government to answer in ‘Yes or No’.
 
Some farmer leaders present in the meeting were seen putting finger on their lips and holding a paper written ‘Yes or No’ on that.
 
“All members of delegation have decided to keep silent. The government side is trying to draw us out. But there is utter silence from our side,” Kuruganti said.
