Farmers Protest Update: Negotiations between government and farmer leaders inconclusive, find out what happened 8th round of metting today
The blockade between the government and farmers on new agricultural laws did not end even in the 8th round of negotiations. Friday’s 8th round of talks is also over. Now the meeting will be on the 15th January. In the middle, there will also be a session of the Supreme Court on January 11 in the farmers movement. During the interview, the attitude of the farmers was very strong.
After meeting with farmers’ leaders, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said today all three agricultural laws were being discussed with the farmers union but no solution was found. On behalf of the government it was said that the law should be given another option besides withdrawal, but no alternative was found.
The government has repeatedly said that if the farmers union gives any option other than withdrawing the law, we are ready to speak. The agitators believe these laws should be withdrawn. But many people in the country are in favor of these laws. The farmers’ union and the government have decided to meet on January 15 at noon. I hope a solution will be found on January 15th.
To join farmers organizations supporting agricultural laws at the meeting, Tomar said there is no such idea at the moment, we are talking to the agitating side now, but if the need arises, the government will take a call to to consider.
At the same time, Rakesh Tikait Bharatiya Kisan, the national spokesman of the Union, said that the date is moving forward. At the meeting, all farmers ’leaders called for the bill to be canceled in a single voice. We want the bill again, the government wants the amendment. If the government hadn’t listened to us, we wouldn’t have listened to the government either.
