Chandigarh:

Farmers are looking more excited after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement of withdrawing all three agricultural laws. It was expected that the farmers would return home after the announcement of the withdrawal of all three agricultural laws, but this does not appear to be happening. The number of farmers is increasing on the borders of Delhi. The farmers standing at the protest site on the borders of the capital are not showing signs of retreat.

Farmers of Punjab and Haryana have started moving in large numbers to Singhu and Tikri border near Delhi by rail and road. A prominent farmers’ union has decided to organize a mahapanchayat on Friday to commemorate a year of protests near the Delhi border.

Last week, PM Narendra Modi surprisingly announced the withdrawal of three controversial agricultural laws. After which the farmers said that they would not end their protest until the laws were formally repealed and other demands were not met.

The United Kisan Morcha, which is spearheading the protest by a group of farmers’ unions, wrote an open letter to PM Modi on Sunday, demanding the resumption of talks with the government on his six outstanding demands. These demands also include a law guaranteeing the Minimum Support Price (MSP).

The United Kisan Morcha also demanded withdrawal of cases against farmers and construction of a memorial for the protesters who lost their lives during the agitation against three controversial central agricultural laws.

The farmers’ demands include removal of penalties listed under the ‘Air Quality Management Commission Act, 2021 in the National Capital Territory and adjoining areas’ as well as the dismissal and arrest of Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra.

In a meeting on Sunday, the farmers’ group also decided on a series of upcoming events, including a march to Parliament on November 29.
