Farmers strike for live news: Round 11 Can’t farmers access their channels as a state-owned company?
Direct Agrarian Revival of Indian Farmers: The peasant struggle that began in 2020 has entered 2021 and no agreement has yet been reached on this issue. As we celebrate Republic Day, the government hopes to resolve these issues soon.
2020 Indian farmers are directly opposed: When asked by Union ministers to consider the government’s proposal to implement the law for 12-18 months, the farmers ’unions demanded the complete repeal of the three government laws. Eleven meetings between the farmers’ associations and the government on the three farm rules ended without further explanation. No date has been fixed by the government for the next meeting, said PKU Grandikari (Punjab) state president Surjit Singh Poole. Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar told farmers’ organizations that the government was ready to hold another meeting if the government was willing to discuss the plan to postpone the rules. Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Railways, Commerce and Food Minister Piyush Goyal and Commerce Minister Som Prakash spoke to representatives of farmers’ associations at Vijayan Bhavan here. The meeting will last about five hours, but the two sides are facing less than 30 minutes today, farmer leaders said.
At the last conference, the government promised to implement the farm rules for 18 months
without appointing a joint committee to resolve the problems of the farmers’ organizations and the central government. However, one of the protesting farmers’ groups has rejected the government’s proposal outright, saying it wants nothing more than the repeal of all these laws. The Kisan Morcha, a coalition of opposition organizations, said in a statement that its full council had decided to reject the government’s request. He called for the complete repeal of the three rules of the farm, and called on the government to enact the MSP Act, which pays all farmers. It is noteworthy that these three farm rules were already in effect until further notice by the Court of Notice. The Supreme Court also appointed a panel of experts to consult with those appointed to resolve the situation. The High Court directed the SC-appointed panel to submit its report within two months. On January 21, the SC-appointed committee began consulting with the appointees and contacted ten farmers’ associations to discuss the matter in detail. All three farm rules were passed in September last year. The law is a major change in the agricultural sector, which the federal government has been claiming will help increase farmers’ incomes.
The meeting between the farmers’ organizations and the Delhi Police, who staged a protest on January 26 over a tractor seat on Delhi’s Outer Ring Road, did not take place yesterday. While farmers are sticking to the demand to remove it from the busy outer ring road, the police are reluctant to allow similar vision problems. Speaking to reporters after a meeting with police, Swaraj Abhiyan leader Yogendra Yadav said, “The police want the farmer leaders to pull their tractor seat out of the national capital, but that is not possible.”
