Delhi, 20 Febuary 2024: Despite the government’s proposal to purchase crops at Minimum Support Price (MSP), farmer leaders have rejected the offer, stating it does not meet their demands. In a press conference on Monday evening, farmer leader Jagjit Singh Dallewal announced the rejection after discussions among the farmer forums.

This development follows four rounds of inconclusive talks between the central government and farmers. The rejection of the government’s demands has further fueled tensions, prompting farmers to announce their decision to march to Delhi on February 21.

Sarwan Singh Pandher, the general secretary of the Punjab Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Samiti, affirmed that the ‘Delhi Chalo’ march will proceed as planned, alongside continued discussions with the government regarding MSP.

The repeated rejection of government proposals underscores the deep-seated grievances within the farming community. The upcoming march signifies the farmers’ unwavering resolve to advocate for their rights and demand meaningful solutions to their concerns.

The escalating tensions highlight the urgent need for constructive dialogue and decisive action to address the farmers’ grievances. As the march approaches, it becomes increasingly crucial for both sides to engage in sincere negotiations aimed at resolving the ongoing impasse and fostering a mutually beneficial resolution.
