Farmers protest: Samyukt Kisan Morcha forms 5-member committee to resume talks with government

Soon after the meeting, the SKM leaders said they will not move from the Singhu Border here until cases filed against farmers are withdrawn and demanded an assurance in writing.

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of farm unions that is leading the farmers’ protest, on Saturday formed a 5-member committee to resume talks with the Modi government on issues including Minimum Support Price.

The members of the committee are Gurnam Singh Chaduni, Balbir Singh Rajewal, Yudhvir Singh, Ashok Dhawale and Shiv Kumar Kakka.

The Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait announced that it will be the authorized body to talk to the government. The next meeting of SKM is scheduled to be held on December 7 to decide the future course of the movement, he said.

Several farmer leaders gathered at the Singhu border, the epicentre of farmers’ protests, on the call of SKM to decide the next move on farmers’ protest.

Soon after the meeting, the SKM leaders said they will not move from the Singhu Border here until cases filed against farmers are withdrawn and demanded an assurance in writing.

Ashok Dhawale, one of the committee members, said that the repeal of the three agri laws was a big victory for Indian farmers. Farmers’ union will put forth their demands for a Central law for MSP, junking of the Electricity Bill and Parali Bill, withdrawal of cases filed against farmers, compensation for families of 700 farmers who died during the agitation, he said.

Why did SKM come up with a 5-member Committee?

  • The SKM believes the government was attempting to divide the farmers by making individual calls to certain farmers requesting to establish a communication channel.
  • The SKM believes with them choosing five people, now the Centre will have to formally contact any of the members named.
  • If the Government calls upon the SKM for deliberation, these five members will represent the farmers’ union.
  • Post meeting with the Government, the 5-member committee will convene a full-body meeting and decide future course of action
