New Delhi: The Sanyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) has called off their protest at the national capital’s borders, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the three contentious farm laws will be repealed on 19th November.
SKM further announced that the farmers will vacate the Delhi borders and return to their homes starting Saturday i.e. 11 December. It is learned that the farmers are also planning to hold a victory march on that day, and have said they will begin celebrations only after the final rights of Chief of Defence Staff Gen. Bipin Rawat.
The Houses of Parliament has already passed the repeal bill at the beginning of the ongoing Winter Session.
While the demand for the repeal of the laws was finally agreed to, the farmers then wrote to PM Modi, stating that they will continue their protest for other demands, chief among them the legal guarantee for Minimum Support Price (MSP). The Centre then proposed a committee to resolve the MSP issue. Later, Demand for Withdrawal of cases was proposed which was also agreed by the center.
The SKM declared this as a victory on “authoritarian government’, but, warned that they will return if the center does not react to consensus by January 15th.
The Protesters have started the removal of tents and blockades that were created around 1 year ago.
