The SKM, a consortium of 40-odd farmers’ organisations, had on December 9, 2021 declared to droop their 15-month lengthy agitation that was began to protest the three contentious farm legal guidelines handed by the Parliament in 2020.
The agitation had continued even after the three legal guidelines – the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020 and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act 2020 – have been repealed by the Parliament because the farmers’ caught to their different calls for vis-a-vis authorized backing for minimal help worth (MSP) for all farmers being the prime demand after repeal of the three legal guidelines.
Almost six weeks after that, there was “no word” concerning the formation of the committee on MSP and different points.
“The meeting will be held at 11 am tomorrow,” a SKM spokesperson confirmed on Friday.
Farm chief and Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) chief Rakesh Tikait had advised IANS two weeks in the past that the federal government had not sought any names as representatives from the farming group.
There has been “no talk” about withdrawing circumstances lodged towards agitating farmers too.
