Farmer Unions To Return To Table For Next Round Of Talks
New Delhi: Soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the Centre is ready for talks on “issues, logic and facts” with the farmers protesting against the contentious farm laws, the farmer unions declared that talks will resume on December 29.
Farmer unions, under the banner of Sanyukt Kisan Morcha, informed the media that the talks with the government will be held at 11 am on Tuesday. The farmers have been protesting at the Singhu border for almost a month now.
The Unions said that the agenda of the meeting will be: modalities to be adopted to repeal the three central farm Acts; mechanisms to be adopted to make remunerative MSP, recommended by the National Commission on Farmers, a legally guaranteed entitlement for all farmers and all agricultural commodities.
Amendments will also be made and notified in the ‘Commission for the Air Quality Management in National Capital Region and Adjoining Areas Ordinance, 2020’ to exclude farmers from penal provisions of the ordinance; and, changes to be made in the draft Electricity (Amendment) Bill, 2020 to protect farmer interests, reported The Indian Express.
