Compromise between government and farmers fails again, now next meeting on 15th
new Delhi: The talks between the government and farmer leaders ended on 8 January without any decision. This means the farmer movement will continue even further.
Now the next round of talks will be held on 15 January. Earlier on 4 January, the meeting between the farmers’ representatives and the government was inconclusive.
However, in the sixth round of talks earlier, two issues were agreed upon. It was hoped that a solution to the remaining two issues would be found. But both the government and the farmers could not reach any solution today.
At 2 pm, talks started between the representative of 40 agitating farmers’ organizations and Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar. This was the 8th round of talks.
After the meeting, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said, ‘We want the farmers union to discuss the 3 laws in detail but, the farmers union remained adamant on repealing the laws. So, we could not reach any conclusion.
After the 7th round meeting, Rakesh Tikait, spokesperson of the Bharatiya Kisan Union had said that his issues were discussed with the government but, no consensus was reached.
He repeated, his only demand is that the new agricultural laws should be withdrawn. Rakesh Tikait said, ‘No return of law, no return home’.
On the other hand, the farmers standing on the borders of Delhi have announced to give a new face to the movement.
Farmers’ organizations say that if the government does not accept their demand, they will take a tractor march towards Delhi on 26 January.
