In parallel the 'Delhi Chalo' march initiated by farmers from Punjab against the central government has entered its third day. A pivotal meeting between farmer unions and the central government is scheduled for 5 pm today to address the issues raised by the protesting farmers.

The farmers, represented by Sanyukt Kisan Morcha and the Punjab Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee, led by Jagjeet Singh Dallewal and Sarwan Singh Pandher, have presented a comprehensive set of 12 demands to the central government. These demands include securing a minimum support price (MSP) for all crops, aligning with the recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission report, advocating for a complete debt waiver, and establishing a pension scheme for farmers and farm laborers.

Despite assurances from the central government regarding improved crop prices, the farmers, dissatisfied with the lack of concrete action have resumed their peaceful march. They emphasize their unwavering commitment to safeguarding the rights and well-being of the farming community, underscoring the significance of their ongoing protest.
