Two sweet words were done to convince the farmers that the government could not do the letters and presentation of the meeting hall. During the meeting on Wednesday, the farmers were preparing to eat the food that came from the langar at lunch break. Ministers Narendra Singh Tomar, Piyush Goyal and Som Prakash also reached there. Agriculture Minister Tomar told a farmer leader- O paaji, eating alone. The answer was received from there – No sir, we also order plates for you. After this, the three ministers took the plate and lined up and ate food among the farmers.
Then the thing became …
According to sources in the news agency, the behavior of the ministers lightened the atmosphere. The three ministers also accompanied the farmers in the tea break after lunch. This sent a positive message to the peasant leaders. On the other hand, the government’s stance remained soft not only outside but also inside the meeting hall. As a result, 2 out of 4 issues were discussed.
Consent made on these 2 demands
1. No case will be registered for burning stubble: Now 1.Crores are fined and provision for imprisonment for 5 years. The government agreed to remove it.
2. No change in Electricity Act: Farmers fear that this law will stop electricity subsidy. Now this law will not be made.
Meeting on 4 January on 2 demands
1. Demand to repeal all three laws.
2. Demand for separate legislation on MSP.
Expectations of ending the movement increased
The farmers hope that the government’s position in the next meeting will be the same as it was on Wednesday. Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait said that talks with the government were positive. Harpal Singh Bellary said that the government agreed to issue an order on our demands in the matter of Electricity Act and Straws. The withdrawal of agricultural laws and the guarantee of MSP will be discussed on 4 January.
Tractor march averted, but movement continues
The farmers postponed Thursday’s tractor march after the meeting was positive with the government. However, the movement continues. Today is its 36th day. The farmers have been on the borders of Delhi since 26 November. In Punjab, there were agitations before this. Meanwhile, for the first time in 7 rounds of talks, the tussle between the farmers and the government was seen to end.
