Farmers protest suspended after 378 days

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of 40 farm unions, on Thursday decided to suspend the over a year-long farmers' movement against three contentious farm laws and announced that farmers will go back home on December 11 from the protest sites on Delhi's borders. Farmer leaders said that they will again meet on January 15 to see if the government has fulfilled their demands and also announced that farmers will start vacating Delhi border points from December 11. The announcement came after the SKM, which is spearheading the movement, received a central government signed letter where it agreed to consider their pending demands, including withdrawal of cases against farmers and form a committee on MSP. On Wednesday, the SKM had said that it has reached a consensus on a revised draft proposal of the Centre on its pending demands. "This is not the end as the movement is just suspended. We have decided to meet again on January 15," farmer leader and SKM core committee member Balbir Singh Rajewal said in a press conference. Farmer leader and SKM member Gurnam Singh Chaduni said, "A review meeting will be convened on January 15 to see if the government met all the demands. If they do not, we can take a call on resuming the protest." Farmer leaders said that farmers will take out victory marches on December 11 to their respective places. Farmers, mainly from Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, started protesting at Delhi border points on November 26 last year against the three farm laws. The laws have been repealed, but they are demanding legal guarantee on MSP for their crops and withdrawal of cases against farmers, among others.
