After the meeting held on Sunday, Balvir Singh Rajewal and Jatinder Singh Virk, president of Bharatiya Kisan Union Rajewal told that a Mahapanchayat has been called in Lucknow on November 22. He said that on November 26, on the occasion of completion of one year of the farmers’ movement, a lot of farmers are coming and on November 27, the next step of the agitation would be considered.

Till the time the MSP guarantee bill is not brought and other demands are not accepted, it will not be welcomed, he said.
Meanwhile, there is news that in the meeting of the Union Cabinet on November 24, approval to withdraw all the three agricultural laws will be considered. The bill to withdraw the laws will be introduced in the winter session of Parliament after the cabinet’s nod. The session of Parliament is scheduled to begin from November 29. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced that the government would complete the constitutional process to repeal agricultural laws in the Parliament session that begins later this month. He had also said that a committee would be formed to work out the new framework for Minimum Support Price (MSP).
Rajewal also said on Sunday that an open letter was being written to the Prime Minister, in which some demands would be made. This will include the demand to form a committee for the MSP guarantee bill, to cancel the electricity bill and to repeal the law brought for stubble burning. He said that till these demands are also not accepted, the struggle will continue.
