No new year celebrations for the protesting farmers!

The government and farm unions reached some common ground on December 30 to resolve protesting farmers’ concerns over rise in power tariff and penalties for stubble burning, but the two sides remained deadlocked over the main contentious issues of the repeal of three farm laws and a legal guarantee for MSP.

The Haryana Police on December 31 used a water cannon and tear gas as farmers on tractor-trailers broke through barricades at the Shahjahanpur border with Rajasthan, trying to push towards the national capital.

As protesting farmer unions continue sticking to their position on their demands, the Kerala Assembly passed a resolution against the three farm laws brought by the Central Government.

  • “There is no New Year for us until the government accepts our demands,” said Harjinder Singh from Punjab’s Ropar, who has been camping at the Delhi-Haryana border (Singhu border) with Delhi since November 25.

The next round of talks will be held on January 4, 2021.

Stay tuned on Deccan Herald newspaper for more of the latest updates.

It is unlikely that they will settle on Jan 4th. The protest are politically motivated to score some points. It is in their political patrons’ interest to keep the issue alive as long as possible.

It is no wonder that the Leftist Kerala government has passed the resolution against it. As they are the ones who are spearheading this protest in the garb of the farmers. I think India has to deal with these left forces firmly or else they will break India up.

Yes it is true. It’s only the left wing that doesn’t want any settlement. I am of the opinion that CPI activities in India should be banned. In Punjab’s farming community too they have a sizeable following. I really don’t know what hesitation the government has in giving them a legal guarantee for MSP and indeed after this they will have no justification of continuing with the protest because their demand of repealing the laws is preposterous. If the government was to meet it then there was no reason for it to let the protest extend it this far. Some how BJP’s connect at the grass roots is not good, otherwise even if the opposition which is known to work against the government shouldn’t be able to gather enough support to make a mess of every situation but as we have seen, the succeed in doing that.

Hope things get sorted out peacefully!! It is really absurd…when more than seventy five percent of the farmers have welcomed the Farm Laws!! What we need now is Divine Intervention…so that normalcy comes back !
