The farmers, meanwhile, have decided to intensify their agitation and hold tractor march on Kundli-Manesar-Palwal highway on December 30 in protest against Centre's laws.
“We request people from Delhi and other parts of country to come and celebrate New Year with protesting farmers,” Darshan Pal, one of the leaders of the union said.
Mahendra Singh Tikait, leader of BKU, confirmed that the protesting farmer unions have decided to resume dialogue with the government and have proposed December 29 as the date for the next round of talks.
Tikait, a senior leader of Bharatiya Kisan Union, said the modalities for the repeal of three farm laws and guarantee for MSP
(minimum support price at which the government procures crops from farmers) should be part of the agenda for talks with the government.
Meanwhile, Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) convenor and Nagaur MP Hanuman Beniwal has announced a split from the BJP-led National
Democratic Alliance (NDA) over the Centre's new farm laws.
Thousands of farmers have been camping at three Delhi border points ---- Sighu, Tikri and Ghazipur --- for nearly a month, demanding a complete repeal of three agri laws enacted in September and a legal guarantee on minimum support price.
While the government has presented these laws as major reforms aimed at helping farmers, protesting unions have maintained these Acts will leave them at the mercy of big corporates by weakening the mandi and MSP
The Confederation of All India Traders Association (CAIT), meanwhile, said that the use of the term 'bicholiya' (middlemen) in the course of the farmer agitation is highly derogatory and traders of the country will give appropriate reply at the right time.
