The review meeting of the United Kisan Morcha started on the Singhu border adjacent to Delhi NCR. At the same time, at the very beginning of the meeting, there was a lot of debate among the farmer leaders regarding the issue of contesting elections. At the same time, in this meeting with the governments of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, the promises and assurances of the central government are to be reviewed. Where many more big announcements can be made in this important meeting to be held today. At the same time, in this meeting, the farmer leaders will decide whether the conditions on the basis of which the agreement was reached with the central government were fulfilled or not.
In fact, in this meeting of farmers’ organizations, the new role of United Farmers Front will also be discussed. However, it is being told that in this meeting, the important issues of the meeting, regarding the committee on MSP, cases filed against farmers in all the states have not yet been returned. Apart from this, there will be a meeting regarding action on Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra Teni. At the same time, farmer leader Yogendra Yadav said that all the members of the United Kisan Morcha are participating in the meeting. We had said on 9th December that we will come back on 15th January and evaluate whether the promises made by the government have been fulfilled or not. Since the government had promised that the cases would be withdrawn from all the states, the government would get compensation, the government would form a committee on MSc. These things have to be evaluated.
Till now the cases filed against the farmers have not been returned
At the same time, the Haryana government has said that the cases will be returned, but the cases have not yet been withdrawn and this process has not even started in other states. At present, there is no information about whether the central government had to withdraw the cases of Delhi. No contact has been made by the Central Government regarding the committee from the United Kisan Morcha yet. Everyone has been called in today’s meeting and further decision will be taken in the meeting itself.
Decision can also be taken regarding United Kisan Morcha
Let us inform that in this meeting of farmer organizations, talks will be held regarding the new role of United Kisan Morcha. During this, the United Kisan Morcha will also take a decision regarding the farmers’ organizations going to the polls. Because the big challenge before the United Kisan Morcha, which has always described itself as a non-political organization, is whether it will come out to campaign against the governments in other states including UP, as it has done in West Bengal. Since out of 32 farmer organizations of Punjab, 22 organizations are contesting the Punjab Assembly elections 2022 by forming a Sangharsh Morcha. Not only this, Gurnam Singh Chadhuni is also forming a party and fielding his candidate in the Punjab Assembly elections.
The central government has done wrong to us – Dr. Darshanpal
It is worth mentioning that Dr Darshanpal, leader of United Kisan Morcha said that after the promises of the central government, we went from here on December 9 and what happened to those promises has to be evaluated. Regarding all these things, there is a meeting regarding what should be given about the movement ahead, what should be the attitude. At the same time, the Punjab government has implemented many things, but what we got in writing from the central government is that the governments of Himachal, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana have promised to withdraw the cases, but now except Punjab. This process has not started in any state. However, the central government has misbehaved with us regarding all these things.
