Meeting of Centre-farm unions cancelled, farmer leaders say, will discuss after draft proposal

The farmers’ protest against the three new agricultural laws has entered the day *14*, Meanwhile, Bharatiya Kisan Union spokesperson Rakesh Tikait said that their meeting with the central government which was earlier scheduled on Wednesday has now been cancelled due to failure of expected solution.

Now they are planning to discuss and decide on their next move after the central government will share with them the draft proposal with new amendments in the contentious farm laws enacted in September.

This announcement comes following a day after a group of 14 leaders of the agricultural community met Union minister Amit Shah to resolve the ongoing farmers’ agitation and large scale protests in various regions of Delhi and Haryana triggered by agri laws that they say will hurt their incomes and benefit large corporations.

According to Hanan Mollah of the Kisan Sabha, The Home Minister Amit Shah had said the government would propose amendments related to a fee structure in notified agriculture produce market committees (APMCs), stricter provisions to safeguard farmers’ land rights, strengthening of notified markets, and a guarantee on minimum support prices (MSPs) in Wednesday’s meeting.
