Union meeting on the Singhu border; Many farmers are in favor of reforms, says Agriculture Minister

Farmers Protest LIVE Updates: One day after the Supreme Court declared that the government’s negotiations with the protesting farmers “did not appear to have worked” and that a committee with representatives from both sides was formed to break the blockade, the Supreme Court will open the Hearing resume petition to remove protesting farmers from borders. Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, who leads the government in the negotiations, said the ongoing agitation on Delhi’s borders is one state and that the farmers of Punjab are “misled” by the opposition. However, he expressed the hope that there would be a solution to the ongoing impasse “soon”. Protesting peasant unions said forming a new body to break the stalemate on the three new agricultural laws was not a solution as they called for a full legislative withdrawal. They also said the government should have formed a committee of farmers and others before the laws were passed by parliament. Abhimanyu Kohar, a leader of Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Sabha, one of 40 protesting peasant unions, said they had recently turned down a government offer to set up such a body.

Swaraj India leader Yogendra Yadav, who is also a member of the umbrella organization Sankyukt Kisan Morcha, said on Twitter: “The monitoring committee can and must decide on the constitutionality of the three farm laws. However, it is not for the judiciary to decide.” the feasibility and desirability of these laws. That is between the farmers and their elected leaders. SC monitors negotiations would be the wrong way to go. “The Bhartiya Kisan Union (Ekta Ugrahan), which led the agitation on the Tikri border, said there would be no importance for a new committee now. The three agricultural laws passed in September were recognized by the government as important reforms in the agricultural sector planned to remove the middlemen and allow farmers to sell anywhere in the country.
