submit the names of five farmer leaders for a committee on MSP, we will choose in the meeting whether we have to send out the names to them,”SKM core committee member Darshan Pal told PTI. The Centre on Tuesday had demanded five names from the SKM to form a panel to ponder on MSP and other concerns. However, the SKM in a statement stated that its leaders had gotten a phone call from the Centre on the issue but there was no official communication. On Monday, the main federal government had passed a costs in Parliament to repeal the 3 contentious farm

laws. Repeal of the farm laws was among the primary needs of the protesting farmers. But the stalemate continues as their other needs such as legal assurances for MSPs, compensation to families of farmers who

died during the movement and withdrawal of cases versus them are still to be met. The SKM, an umbrella body of 40 farmer unions, in a statement on Friday said that farmers ‘battle for pending needs continues as there is no official assurance from the Centre yet on them.”SKM has not gotten any reply from the federal government in reaction to its letter to the Prime Minister, where SKM had raised six key needs as a pre-condition for withdrawal of the farm movement,”the declaration said. It stated that long-term morchas in dozens of places continue at the Delhi borders and somewhere else.( with PTI inputs) ALSO READ: Farm laws demonstration will end only after govt provides composed guarantee on pending demands: Farmers ALSO READ: No data on farmers’death during demonstrations, so no settlement: Govt in Parliament Newest India News Released at Fri, 03 Dec 2021 20:35:05 -0600
