Sonepat, December 8
The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) on Wednesday accepted the Union Government’s revised draft proposal on the pending demands. It is likely to announce the suspension of the agitation after a meeting at Singhu on Thursday.
A five-member SKM committee, comprising Balbir Singh Rajewal, Shiv Kumar Kakka, Gurnam Singh Charuni, Ashok Dhawale and Yudhvir Singh, today held a meeting in Delhi to discuss the revised proposal.
Dhawale said the earlier draft was sent back after leaders raised certain objections. “We now received the revised proposal in which the government has either given a clarification or addressed the concerns,” he said.
Addressing the media, the SKM leaders said they could not share the details of the draft proposal and would send their consent to the government tomorrow.
A farmer leader said in the revised draft, the government had made some additions, including acceptance of their demand for immediate withdrawal of cases registered against farmers.
“The second addition is related to the MSP committee. There was till now a vague declaration regarding the formation of a committee. It has now been mentioned that the MSP would be for all farmers. The government has also given assurance to adequately compensate the families of farmers who lost their lives during the agitation,” he said.
