New Delhi: Three weeks after the Centre announced the repeal of the three farm laws and days after Parliament officially accepted the proposal. The protesting farmers have ended their year-long agitation on 11th December and started to vacate the protest sites at the Tikri and Singhu borders. There are no updates for Ghazipur as of now.
The protesters were seen dismantling their tents, packing their belongings, and taking stock of items that had to be donated to the poor. Some farmers from Punjab’s Mansa district also decided to take soil packed into tiny plastic jars and protest pamphlets safely tucked away into bags.
The agitation was called off on Thursday by the farmers’ organizations after the consensus on the proposal received by the central government.
However, The farmers stated 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.
