Farmers March to Parliament Withdrawn, Union Meet Again on Dec 4

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) on Saturday announced to withdraw the proposed daily tractor march to Parliament during the Winter Session. The farmer leaders have decided to meet again on December 4

The SKM, an umbrella body of farmers’ groups, had earlier announced that 500 farmers will participate in peaceful tractor marches to the Parliament every day during the entire winter session, starting from November 29. The farmers remain undecided on the tractor march even after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement to repeal the farm laws owing to the protests by farmers’ bodies at Delhi’s borders.

The SKM welcomed the stance taken by the government but said that it will wait for the announcement to take effect through due parliamentary procedures.

The SKM, an umbrella body of farmer unions protesting against the laws for the past one year, also said it wants an assurance in Parliament on their demand for a legislation guaranteeing farmers Minimum Support Price (MSP) for their crops.

SKM leader Darshan Pal, while addressing a press conference, said, “We are suspending the Parliament march on Monday. We had written to the prime minister for withdrawal of cases against farmers, allotment of land for building a memorial for farmers who lost their lives (during the protest), suspension of Ajay Mishra Teni’ from the Union Cabinet over the Lakhimpur Kheri violence, along with other issues.”

The SKM also demanded that the government should initiate a dialogue with them in a respectful way.
