Union Home Minister Amit Shah will meet Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh tomorrow amid the escalating farmers’ protests around Delhi. The meeting will take place at 9:30 AM, sources said, ahead of the crucial meeting with farmers’ bodies.
Tomorrow’s meeting with farmer organisations will be the fourth — the last one had failed with the farmers turning down the Centre’s proposal of a special committee to thrash out the differences over the farm laws.
The farmers have warned that tomorrow is the “last chance” for the government to take a decision on the laws, which the Centre has called “historic reforms” in the farm sector.
“Tomorrow is the last chance for the government to take a decision to repeal the laws, otherwise this movement will become huge and the government will fall,” Pratibha Shinde of the Lok Sangharsh Morcha was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
“We’ll burn effigies in every district of Maharashtra tomorrow and on December 5 in Gujarat to protest,” she said.
