The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), an umbrella body of farmer unions that has been spearheading the protest against the three farm laws, has been asked to give an undertaking that all COVID-19 norms would be followed and the stir would be peaceful.

Farmer leader Prem Singh Bhangu said that the farmers’ next stop will be Uttar Pradesh. “Our UP mission will begin on Sept 5. We’ll totally isolate BJP. There is no alternative other than to repeal three farm laws. We are ready for talks,” said Bhangu. BKU leader Rakesh Tikait said that the farmers will hold ‘Kisan Sansad’ at Jantar Mantar while monitoring the developments in Parliament.

Over 10 rounds of talks with the government, which has been projecting the laws at major agricultural reforms, have failed to break the deadlock between the two sides.
