As the farmers’ protest is heading ahead towards its fifth round of talks on Saturday, the pressure on the central government has been increasing. The farmers unions opposed the new agricultural laws have appealed for a Bharat Bandh on Tuesday, December 08, 2020. The farmers from different parts of the nation will also be going ahead with planned anti-governmental protests on Saturday, December 05, 2020.
A big decision of Bharat Bandh was taken by the farmer’s unions from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh along with other states in a meeting on Friday with everyone conveying uncertainties over the consequence of the fifth round of talks. Moreover, it was decided by a voice vote the representatives at the talks would ask the central government to discard the new laws.

The agitators also said that the issue before the farmers was not just about one particular provision. The Central Government has declared a few amendments that obstruct well short of discarding the laws. The brutalizing of positions, even though the unions assemble for talks, could be considered as pressure strategies. However, if they plough on with the demand, Saturday may not see any quantum leap. “We need to take this protest forward in support of farmers’ demands and the government has to take back the farm laws,” Hannan Mollah, Former CPM MP and general secretary of All India Kisan Sabha. Mollah along with Lakhowal took part in the talks at Vigyan Bhawan on Thursday, December 03, 2020.
Additionally, officials have taken necessary actions on major arguments raised in the fourth round of talks by farmers and kept their draft prepared to bring some changes as assured for contemplation by Narendra Singh Tomar, Agriculture Minister.
