Farmer unions announce suspension of agitation against three farm laws
Samyukta Kisan Morcha has announced to suspend their agitation against the three farm laws and related issues. Addressing a press conference in Delhi, Farmer leader Gurnam Singh Charuni said, the decision has been taken in the meeting of farmers leaders.
He said, agitating farmers will start leaving the site of agitation from Saturday. He said, farmers will hold a review meeting on 15th of next month and if government does not fulfill its promises, they could resume the agitation. Farmers have been agitating at Delhi borders for about a year.
The Parliament had repealed these laws on the first day of the ongoing Winter Session of Parliament. Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his address to the nation on the 19th of last month had announced that the new farm laws enacted in 2019 would be repealed in the winter session of Parliament.
Mr. Modi had appealed to all protesting farmers to go home. The Prime Minister had also said a committee would be constituted to look into all aspects of agriculture.
