Farmers End Protest After 15 Months

New Delhi: Indian farmers, who have been staging protests for over 15 months against the (now repealed) draconian farm laws and other issues, have declared that they will end their protest on Saturday, December 11, and get back to their homes. Farmers demands included a legal guarantee of Minimum Support Price (MSP).

The farmers’ unions have decided to do a Fateh Ardas (victory prayer) at 5:30 pm on Thursday, and a Fateh March (victory march) at the protest sites of Singhu and Tikri on national capital’s borders at 9 am on December 11, NDTV’s sources said.

The sources also added that Punjab farm leaders plan to pay obeisance at the Amritsar’s Golden Temple on December 13. The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) is set to convene another meeting in Delhi on December 15.

It may be recalled that the Centre yesterday had sent a written draft proposal to the SKM’s five-member committee after a letter from SKM to PM Modi listing six demands on November 21. Farmers had categorically pointed out that repeal of the controversial laws was only one of the several concerns they had raised. They refused to leave the protest sites after PM Modi announced the cancelling of the laws and requested them to go back.
