Mumbai: As on the 28th day of the agitation, farmers on Wednesday urged the central government to create a conducive environment for fruitful dialogue. Organizing a farmers’ conference, farmer leader Shiv Kumar Kakka said that the government should give up its stubbornness and accept the demands of the farmers.
Stating that a favorable environment would create a better environment for dialogue with the Center, he said that the farmers had already told Home Minister Amit Shah that they would not accept the amendments of the Center.
He said, ‘We urge the government to create a conducive environment for fruitful dialogue. Even the Supreme Court has said to suspend the implementation of agricultural laws. This will lead to a better environment to hold talks,” Shiv Kumar Kakka, National President, Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Mahasangh, said at Singhu border.
“We have already told Home Minister Amit Shah that protesting farmers will not accept amendments,” farmer leader Shiv Kumar Kakka said.
Yudhvir Singh of Bhartiya Kisan Union said that the Centre is taking the issues of farmers lightly and said that the government should take cognizance of this matter and find a solution soon.
“The way the Center is taking this dialogue process forward, it is clear that the government wants to delay the issue and break the morale of farmers’ opposition. The government is taking our issues lightly, warning them to take cognizance of the matter and will find a solution soon,” said Yudhveer Singh.
Swaraj Abhiyan leader Yogendra Yadav said, “The farmers’ unions are ready to talk to the government and are waiting with an open mind for the government.”
Yogendra Yadav also said that in his recent letter to the farmers’ unions, the government is trying to ‘discredit’ the protesters.
“The government’s new letter is a new attempt to discredit farmers’ unions,” he said.
“We urge the government not to repeat those meaningless amendments which we have rejected but come up with a concrete proposal in writing so that it can be made an agenda, and the process of negotiation can be started as soon as possible,” Yogendra Yadav stated.
