United Kisan Morcha still adamant on its demands, today a big meeting will be held at Singhu border

New Delhi: The United Kisan Morcha is still adamant on its demands regarding the farmers’ movement. A meeting of the United Kisan Morcha is to be held on the Singhu border at 11 am today. Many important decisions will be taken in the meeting. Besides this, the United Kisan Morcha (SKM) will hold a review meeting in the first week of December at its Singhu Seema camp site to decide the future course of action for the agitation that was suspended after the abrogation of three agricultural laws. The SKM, (a consortium of 40 farmer organisations) had on December 9, 2021, announced the suspension of their 15-month-long agitation, which was launched in 2020 to protest against three controversial agriculture laws passed by Parliament.

Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on three laws – Farmer Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, Price Assurance and Agricultural Services Act, 2020 and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act 2020 – agitation even after repeal by Parliament This continued as farmers stuck to their other demands, which was legal backing for Minimum Support Price (MSP) for all farmers after the repeal of three laws.

Farmer leader and Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait had told two weeks ago that the government has not sought any names as representatives of the farming community. There is also no talk of withdrawing the cases registered against the agitating farmers.

If sources are to be believed, the promises and trust of the central government will be reviewed in this meeting. The United Front will also decide on the tractor march on 26 January. Not only this, many more big announcements can be made in today’s meeting. Action may also be announced against the leaders of the farmers’ organization contesting the elections. There is also a program to hold a press conference of the farmer leaders after the meeting.
