Farmers Protest: Government ready to talk on farmers issue in Parliament - sources

The Central Government is ready to talk on the issue of farmers in the Parliament. 
News agency ANI has given this information citing government sources. According to this, there are four ordinances which are to be discussed after the President's address. After this, the government is ready to talk about the issue of farmers on the time left. It is being told that the opposition has given its consent at this time.

Meanwhile, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said again on Friday that the government's proposal to amend the new agricultural laws to satisfy the sentiments of the farmers does not mean that there is a flaw in these laws. On the other hand, the opposition parties demanded a new law and a Congress MP described the existing laws as a 'decree of death' for the farmers.

"What is 'black' in 'black laws'?"

Amid pressure from the peasant movement and the demand for withdrawal of new agricultural laws, Tomar defended these laws with full vigor in the Rajya Sabha. He also said that the farmers' unions and those supporting them have not been able to remove the flaws in them (under the new agricultural laws). Those opposing agricultural laws are not willing to tell what is 'black' in these 'black laws', in which the government should reform.

"Death decree for farmers"

After discussion, various political parties, demanding the enactment of new laws, also raised the issue of new fortifications of demonstration sites on the borders of Delhi. Congress leader Pratap Singh Bajwa called the new agricultural laws a "death decree" for farmers. He compared the blockers built at the demonstration sites to the 'Berlin Wall', which was constructed to divide the country (Germany).

While interfering in the discussion on the motion of thanks to the President's address, Tomar rejected the claims of the Congress and other opposition parties that farmers across the country are dissatisfied with the new laws. He said that only one state's farmers are being given wrong information and they are being instigated.
