Arvind Kejriwal to hold meeting with farmers union reps at Vidhan Sabha tomorrow

A bigger protests could be held on February 26 to mark the completion of three months of the farmer protest

Aam Aadmi Party nation convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will hold a meeting with farmer union representatives on Sunday at Vidhan Sabha. The source said farm laws and other issues related to the farmers will be taken up in the meeting. Farmers have been camping at Delhi’s borders demanding to repeal centre’s three farm laws.

The announcement from the Aam Aadmi Party’s official Twitter account comes days after the Aam Aadmi Party’s poor performance in the Punjab urban body polls that was swept by the Congress.

Kejriwal met the protesting farmers multiple times over the past three months. Every time, Kejriwal has assured the protesting farmers by providing basic amenities like water supply at the various protest sites. He also criticised the police for throwing up hurdles in its efforts to help the protesters.

Last year in December, Kejriwal tore copies of the three farm laws to mark his protest against the laws even as the assembly passed a resolution tabled by revenue minister Kailash Gahlot demanding that the Central government should repeal the laws immediately.

Eleven rounds of talks between the Modi government and the farmers ended with no result. The Centre has even offered to put the laws on hold for 1.5 years, but the farmers are sticking to complete repeal of three farm laws.

Some farm union leaders have also hinted that bigger protests could be held on February 26, to mark the completion of three months of the farmer protest.
