The fifth round of talks with the central government of farmers is going to be held today amidst the sit-in demonstration on the Delhi border. But the farmer leaders are adamant on their demands. Farmer leaders say that the central government should withdraw all three agricultural laws and ensure minimum support price (MSP) of agricultural produce.
Farmer leaders said that they are not ready to accept the MSP as less than the guarantee law. They say that the government will have to do so much. Farmer leader Jagjit Singh Dalewal said that the government should withdraw all the three agricultural laws and make a guarantee law for MSP. The government will have to accept the demands of the farmers.
Jagjit Singh said that we have already made this point clear. Even today we are cleaning and in today’s meeting we will keep emphasis on these things. No matter how much the government tries to explain, we are not going to accept. We have told the government many times. He said that we have also told the government in writing that all the three laws will have to be completely returned.
Farmer leader Jagjit Singh said that now the government will have to decide how it leads the way, what it does. Our movement will continue. We are getting the support of farmers from all over the country. He also said that we are coming to the meeting today with hope, with a very positive attitude. We hope that the government will do something for the benefit of farmers. In the last meeting too, we came with a lot of expectations and the government will have to find a way out.
