Farmers reject govt proposal to put new laws on hold, talks today

Jan 22, 2021 08:32 IST

Protesting farmer unions on Thursday rejected the government's proposal to suspend three farm laws for 18 months. The unions said they want nothing but a complete repeal of all the contentious legislations.

"In a full general body meeting of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha today, the proposal put forth by the government yesterday, was rejected. A full repeal of three central farm acts and enacting a legislation for remunerative MSP for all farmers were reiterated as the pending demands of the movement," Samkyukt Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of protesting unions, said in a statement.

The government, during their tenth round of negotiation with the agitating farmer leaders on Wednesday, proposed to suspend the three farm laws for 1-1.5 years and set up a joint committee to find an amicable solution in the interest of the farming community.

The two sides will meet again on Friday.
