After the Red Fort violence in Delhi on 26 January, the farmers’ movement was seen to be weakening, but suddenly the tears of Indian Farmers Union spokesman Rakesh Tikait once again strengthened the movement. Senior member of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha and farmer leader Abhimanyu Kohar said that the ongoing protest against agricultural laws will be further strengthened as more farmers will join it in the coming days.
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 talks, proposed to suspend agricultural laws for a period of one to one and a half 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 the implementation of these laws to have stayed until further orders.
