Farmers protest continuing till the controversial farm laws repealed in the Winter session of Parliament
Farmers continuing protesting against the Three controversial farm laws which had been passed by the central government, claiming that on passing the laws, it had only sought empowerment of the small-scale farmers.
The government, later on, had repealed them on Friday, on the day marking celebrations on the Prakash Purab of Shree Guru Nanak Dev Ji, followed by huge protests from farmer groups physically present & protesting in Delhi since November last year.
The three controversial farm laws are to be repealed at the beginning of the winter session of parliament this month on November 29th; the farmers union will continue sitting out in protest till they are actually & officially repealed in the session.
Mr. Balbir Singh Rajewal, an official of the (SKM) Sanyukta Kisan Morcha, which is an umbrella unit of farmers, said at the Delhi-Haryana border in Singhu stated that they have already discussed the repealing of the laws but will continue the protest till the actual repealing.
They have also demanded that a law be passed on the MSP & demanded immediate withdrawal of all police cases lodged by the government during the protest.
The Sanyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) officials have further stated that they will continue with their previous agenda consisting of a massive Farmers meeting in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, on November 22nd.
The massive meet will gather at all borders on November 26th & march to the Parliament on November 29th, when the winter session will begin to actual repeal the three contentious Farm laws.
The farmers have also planned to write an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi which will contain their entire list of demands.
On Friday, in a complete turn about PM Modi while addressing & apologizing to the Nation, that he felt something lacked in their dedication while trying to educate the farmers the actual farmer empowerment the laws would have provided if passed, but due to the protest, it could not be done.
The PM also stated that it was an auspicious day celebrating the Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Saheb Ji; hence no blame is to be laid on anyone and that the laws will be repealed.
BJP is expecting to gain from this political plan of repealing laws in the forthcoming elections both in the states of Punjab & Uttar Pradesh.
