Farmers’ protest live updates: Farmers to go ahead with ‘Delhi Chalo’ march on Feb 21, reject Centre’s MSP plan

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), which spearheaded the 2020-21 farmers’ stir, rejected the government’s offer.

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), which spearheaded the 2020-21 farmers’ protest, rejected the central government’s proposal of buying pulses, maize and cotton crops by government agencies at minimum support prices (MSP) for five years. It said the plan was not in the “interests of farmers”.

Jagjit Singh Dallewal, a leader of SKM (Non-Political) that is spearheading the ‘Delhi Chalo‘ march along with the Kisan Mazdoor Morcha, said, “After holding a discussion in our two forums, it has been decided that the Centre’s proposal is not in the interest of farmers and we reject this proposal.”
