    Center blinks: Joint Panel Suggests To Hold Farm Laws For 18 Months

    Center blinks: Joint Panel Suggests To Hold Farm Laws  For 18 Months

    In a major step to end protests by farmers against the new laws on agriculture, passed from Punjab to the gates of Delhi last November, the Center Wednesday proposed to abide by the legislation for 18 months.

    If farmers’ unions declined to appear before a committee of experts appointed by the Supreme Court, the Center proposed to create a joint government committee and farmer’s representatives during negotiations with the syndicates in response to complaints. It suggested that the legislation should be adhered to for a year and a half or before the proposed committee reports.

    Both sides decided on Friday to meet again. Union Minister of Agriculture Narendra Singh Tomar, who led the government delegation to the talks, said “We expect to move to a solution on 22 January.”

    The Center offered in an interview with The Indian Express, one day after RSS Sarkaryawah (general secretary) Suresh ‘Bhaiyyaji’ Joshi called for ‘sensitiveness’ in tackling farmers agitation and said ‘a mid surface must be identified and both sides must be working towards a solution.’

    Joshi stressed that “it’s not good for society to have any agitation lasting for too long… we want the agitation (to) stop fast.”

    Tomar concluded from the talks: “As you are aware, the Supreme Court has halted the agricultural reform legislation for a limited period of time. It’s not going to happen for some time. In the past, and still, now, we told them that it takes longer to look at the law in-depth and explore different issues relating to the chaos. And the time needed can be six months, a year or a half.”
