Baba Ramdev Says Center Should Go Halfway For An Honorable Solution To Farmers’ Protest
Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has said that the Union government should find an intermediate and friendly solution to end the farmers’ protest on the Delhi borders. He added that a prolonged protest would not be in favor of the country. Ramdev made the comments Thursday in Saharanpur.
Ramdev added that the issues raised by the farmers are very sensitive and that the protests should not be prolonged.
The government and the farmers must find an amicable solution that will keep the honor of the farmers intact and at the same time ensure the growth of the agricultural sector in the country. “The government should work to increase farmers’ production and the price of crops,” he said.
The protesting farmers have expressed their fear that three laws passed by the Center to purportedly reform the sector would pave the way for the dismantling of the minimum support price (MSP) system, leaving them at the ‘mercy’ of large corporations. They insist that the three laws passed by Parliament be repealed.
However, the government has argued that the new laws will provide farmers with better opportunities and usher in new technologies in agriculture.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to engage with farmers on Friday during a money transfer event, while the Center expects a breakthrough after inviting protesting farmers’ unions to resume talks.
The farmers’ unions, however, claimed that the government’s latest offer for talks is nothing more than ‘propaganda’ against the peasants to give the impression that they are not interested in dialogue, and asked it to put in the agenda the elimination of the new agricultural laws. to resume discussions.
