Sonipat: The farmers turned down the proposal sent by the government for talks and as per the previously announced schedule, on Monday, 11 farmers sat on hunger strike on the first day.
Farmer leader Baksheesh Singh, member of the United Farmers Front, said about the proposal by the government that it is the same proposal which has been negotiated since October. If the government wants to negotiate, then give a concrete proposal regarding the repeal of the law.
He said that on Sunday night, a five-page proposal was sent by the government for talks, but it contains all the old things. Based on this, there can be no dialogue with the government. He reiterated that if the government is ready to negotiate, then the farmers are also ready, but first the agenda of negotiation should be clear and the demand should be kept in mind that the farmers have nothing less to do than cancel all the three laws.
On the other hand, 11 farmers leaders sat on fast for 24 hours on Monday under the earlier announced fast.
On the Kundli Border, 11 farmers including Ravinder Pal Kaur Gill, President of Bharatiya Kisan Union Ekta Jagjit Singh Dalewal, President of Bhakiyoo Punjab, Furman Singh Sandhu, Buta Singh Chakra Punjab Kisan Union, sat on a fast on behalf of Jai Kisan movement.
