Kundan Singh, New Delhi: Today is the 118th day of the peasant movement against agricultural laws. But there is no solution to this deadlock so far. While the farmers are adamant on their demands, the government is not ready to back down. Farmers on the Ghazipur, Tikri and Singhu borders have been adamant about demanding the withdrawal of agricultural laws, although their number has now reduced considerably.
In the midst of all this, the peasant leaders are constantly churning on new strategies to revive and sharpen their movement. Not only this, to connect more and more farmers with them, big leaders of farmer organizations are constantly conducting panchayats and mahapanchayats. In this series, farmers leader Rakesh Tikait will hold mahapanchayat in Jaipur today. The Mahapanchayat will be held at Vidyadhar Nagar Stadium. In which seating arrangement of about one and a half lakh people has been made.
Today it is Martyr’s Day for all of them. On this occasion, the agitating farmers will celebrate Martyrdom Day on the Ghazipur border and will tell the youth about the dream of independence of Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, Sukhdev. Apart from this, the farmers have once again announced the Bharat Bandh on 26 March. The farmers have appealed to keep all business work from 6 am to 6 pm. After this, on March 28, farmers have announced to burn copies of the three agricultural laws on the occasion of Holika Dahan.
Significantly, since last November 26, a large number of farmers have settled on different borders in Delhi. But till now no agreement has been reached between the farmer and the government on this issue. Till now 12 rounds of talks have been held between the farmers’ government to remove the deadlock on agricultural laws, but no result has been found. Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar proposed to postpone the new agricultural laws from one to one and a half years, but farmers are adamant on their demand for minimum support price guarantee and withdrawal of these agricultural laws.
