New Delhi [India], December 13 (ANI): With farmers’ unions adamant on repealing the three farm laws despite six rounds of talks with the government, Union Minister Som Prakash who was once in the three-minister team discussing amendments with farmers to build a consensus, said that leaders of these unions will soon change into irrelevant.
Prakash told ANI that those leaders who remained cussed, despite the government agreeing on all their demands will lose their relevance and command over farmers.
“The farmers’ union leaders who remain adamant on the agitation will change into irrelevant and additionally it is conceivable that they may lose command over unions and other leaders will emerge. The leader who does not act in time won’t be able to remain one,” warned Som Prakash, Minister of State of Trade and Industry.
The minister also revealed that the government had accepted the entire demands put forth by the farmer unions in the assembly.
“All of them left the assembly on a positive note. Unfortunately, a couple of unions put pressure on those who had approved the proposed amendments,” said the minister.
Prakash said farmer unions want to remember the fact that this agitation is not in the interest of the country and Punjab as there some improper elements can vitiate the atmosphere.
“Let us not harm Punjab’s interest. The people of Punjab are hardworking and passionate. We are hoping they understand,” stated the minister.
On Canada and UK Sikh’s toughen to the agitation, the minister expressed concern over Khalistan propaganda on social media.
“Talks approximately Pakistan and Khalistan are doing the rounds on social media. The agitation will have to not reach a level where the interests of the country are harmed. The government has bent over backwards to accept their demands. Let us not allow Punjab’s atmosphere to be vitiated,” said Prakash.
He also attacked the opposition parties for fitting morally corrupt with several coming out in toughen of the agitation.
“Congress brought in this invoice, Kapil Sibal spoke highly of it but it is unlucky that they’re now opposing it. Ask Badal why he supported the invoice on television together with Harsimrat Kaur Badal. Ask Rahul Gandhi to read his own manifesto. There are no morals,” the minister said.
Farmers have been protesting on different borders of the national capital since November 26 against the three newly enacted farm laws-Farmers’ Produce Commerce and Trade (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Products and services Act, 2020, and the Fundamental Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
