The Economic Survey 2021 (Economic Survey 2021), released on Friday (January 29), amid the farmer movement for the last two months, regarding the three new agricultural laws brought by the Center, said that the recent improvement in agriculture sector was One India, One Market ( One India will help in the creation of One market) and provide more opportunities to the farmers. According to the survey, the recent agrarian reform will give farmers the opportunity for the best deal and thus allow competition to be a necessary condition for welfare for the small farmer.
This statement has come at a time when thousands of farmers have been protesting on the borders of Delhi for the last two months to demand the repeal of new agricultural laws. The survey stated that the current laws had enslaved Indian farmers to local mandis and middlemen. The survey states that in addition to creating One India, One Market for agricultural products, the new reform will help farmers to raise the price of the crop, generate jobs and increase income.
Thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, western Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Rajasthan have been protesting peacefully against agricultural laws on the Tikri, Singhu and Ghazipur borders of Delhi since 26 November 2020. Meetings have been going on between the farmers and the government since 14 October 2020. But there is no result so far. The Central Government, during the 10th round of negotiations, proposed to suspend agricultural laws for a period of one and a half to two years and to constitute a joint committee to consider the laws.
At that time it seemed that the farmers would consider this proposal, but the farmer leaders made it clear that they want to repeal all the three laws and apart from this they have nothing else to accept. During this movement that has been going on for almost two months, there have been 11 rounds of talks between the farmers and the government so far. In only two meetings, two demands have been agreed between the farmers and the government. At present, the Supreme Court has ordered a further stay on the implementation of these laws.
