A delegation of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (Charuni) will meet Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Tuesday to discuss the three contentious farm ordinances introduced by the Centre even though it clarified that there was no change in its plan to go a dharna across the state on Tuesday.
Gurnam Singh Charuni, BKU (Charuni) chief, said: “We have received an invitation for talks from MP Dharambir Singh. Having said that, I want to clarify that there is no change in our agitation plan. Farm activists will go on a dharna at district headquarters across the state on Tuesday. We will continue to protest till our demand is not met.”
The MP said, “All farmers’ unions have been invited for a discussion with the Union Minister.”
In Rohtak, commission agents and representatives of the Akhil Bharatiya Kisan Sabha and the Bharatiya Kisan Union (Ambawata) decided to launch an agitation from Tuesday. They will stage a dharna outside the Mini-secretariat till Sunday.
The decision was taken at a meeting held at the grain market on Monday. Akhil Bharatiya Kisan Sabha vice-president Inderjit Singh said, “Why is the BJP shying away from a public debate? Mandis were set up during the Green Revolution to allow farmers through sell their produce at the MSP and via the PDS.”
