A large number of farmers have been blocking different borders of Delhi since November 26, demanding the repeal of the new agricultural laws. The farmers have blockaded many border points connecting Delhi to Uttar Pradesh and Haryana including Singhu, Tikri, Palwal and Ghazipur.

Till now right rounds of negotiations have been held between the government and the farmers, but all the efforts have been inconclusive.

At present, there is no solution to the issue. Negotiations also took place between the government and the farmers, but all efforts were inconclusive. The farmers are demanding complete removal of three new agricultural laws.

The farmers’ organizations are not willing to scale down their demands of a repeal of the agricultural laws and guarantee for the minimum support price (MSP) system.

Seeing that there is no solution to the issue among them, the anger among the farmers is gradually increasing.
