Rahul Gandhi was not allowed to discuss
Congress’s Rahul Gandhi was among the critics who attacked the Center for not allowing discussion. We wanted to discuss the issue of MSP, we wanted to discuss the Lakhimpur Kheri incident in UP. We wanted to discuss the 700 farmers killed in this movement, and unfortunately that discussion has not been allowed. The rollback came ten days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered an apology to the nation, leading to the announcement of a major repeal. He had said last month that while apologizing to the country, I want to say with a sincere and pure heart that perhaps there was some deficiency in our penance and dedication that we could not explain the truth to some of our farmer brothers. PM Modi also requested the protesters to return to their homes.
Pressuring MSP for assurance ( no die in farmer protest )
While there has been a rollback in Parliament as the protesters demanded that farmers are now pressurizing the Center for assurance on the MSP for their produce. The government has sought names of representatives of agricultural unions who are protesting for a panel proposed by the Prime Minister for talks. SKM leader Darshan Pal told news agency PTI on Tuesday that the Center has sought five names from SKM (United Kisan Morcha) for a committee to deliberate on the issue of Minimum Support Price (MSP) for crops. We haven’t decided on the names yet. We will decide this on our own. The meeting can be held on Saturday. The farmers have announced not to vacate the protest site. ( no die in farmer protest )
