There will be the fifth round of talks between the farmers' organizations and the government on the Delhi border against agriculture law today. No consensus was reached in the fourth round of talks on Thursday. Farmers' organizations are adamant about withdrawing the law altogether. For this, a special session of Parliament has also been called for.
Before the talks to be held today, we have tried to put pressure on the central government. After the mahapanchayat on the Indus border on Friday, farmer organizations announced a Bharat Bandh on 8 December. Along with this, warned that if the new agricultural laws are not withdrawn, then the whole of India will be closed in favor of the farmers. Also, all the tolls will be made free across the country. After the fourth round of talks on Thursday was inconclusive, for the ninth consecutive day, the farmers sat on different boundaries of Delhi.
Farmers' organizations of Punjab met on the Singhu border earlier on Friday morning to discuss the talks with the government on agricultural laws on Thursday. After this, farmer leaders from all over the country met and formulated a strategy for Saturday's talks. After the meeting, the United Kisan Morcha said, "The government is ready to amend the laws, but we have clearly said that these will have to be withdrawn." Farmer leader Harinder Pal Lakhowal said the government has been told to withdraw the law. If the demand is not met, India will be closed on December 8. At the same time, effigies of government and corporate will be burnt on the whole country on Saturday. Farmer leader Gurnam Singh Chadhuni said, if the government does not listen to us on Saturday, then the agitation will increase further. All India Kisan Sabha general secretary Hanan Mollah said the government will have to withdraw all three laws. Indian Farmers Union spokesman Rakesh Tikait said, "The movement will continue till the government does not listen to the farmers."
All three agricultural laws are necessary. We do not agree with the demand to cancel them. However, these laws need to be changed drastically. Must guarantee MSP. Unlimited rights granted to the corporate sector are not accepted. These laws do not talk about protecting the interests of small farmers. - Dinesh Kulkarni, National Organization Minister, Indian Farmers Association
