Negotiations between Punjab farmers and Center on 3 December
The central government has called the farmers of Punjab, who are opposing the agricultural laws, for a second round of talks on December 3. The Center has now invited the unions for ministerial talks. Earlier, the farmer leaders of Punjab had announced the withdrawal of their ‘Stop the Rail’ movement on Monday, stipulating another ministerial meeting. After this, farmers have withdrawn their nearly two-month rail roko movement, opening the way for goods trains only.
Farmers of Punjab are demanding removal of new agricultural laws and new laws in their place. Farmers say that new laws should be brought after extensive consultation with all stakeholders. Apart from this, farmers also want a guarantee on the minimum support price (MSP) front. They fear that the MSP may be abolished by these laws, although the Center has dismissed this fear.
