Farmers’ Protest To Be Called Off Today After Centre Agrees To Withdraw Cases In Fresh Proposal

Farmers’ Protest Likely To End Today After 14 Months, Centre Agrees To The Demands

Highlights:

  • SKM is expected to bring an end its 14-month agitation today.
  • As per SKM, the protest will be called off only after receiving the final copy of the Centre’s new proposal, which accepts their demands.
  • SKM will gather today at Delhi’s Singhu border to make a “formal decision” on ending their year-long protest against farm laws.

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) is expected to end its 14-month-long protest on Thursday (December 9, 2021) at 12 p.m., after obtaining the final copy of the Union government’s updated proposal, which accepts their demands.

This comes after the central government agreed to all of the protesting farmers’ demands, including the dropping of all agitation-related cases and compensation for the families of farmers who died during the campaign against the disputed agriculture laws.

The farmers who were protesting made the following demands:

1. Withdrawal of all agitation-related cases filed during this protest in all states and union territories, as well as under central government agencies, etc.

2. Compensation for all agitated farmers’ families who died during the agitation.

3. Farmers are not criminally liable in situations of stubble burning.

4. Before introducing the electricity adjustment bill in Parliament, the government must consult with the SKM or other farmers’ organisations.

5. A committee will be constituted to debate the minimum support price (MSP); the SKM will identify their members in the panel and submit it to the farmers.

6. The country’s current policy on MSP and its procurement would be continued.

The SKM had asked clarity on some issues in the government’s plan on Tuesday, including the requirement for the dropping of “fake” cases against farmers.

On November 29, Parliament enacted a bill repealing three controversial farm laws, which was one of the key requests of the protesting farmers.

The standoff continues, however, with protestors asking that the government meet their other requests, which include a formal guarantee on MSP and the dropping of charges against farmers.
