Morning briefing: Farmers’ ‘Delhi chalo’ march resumes Today

Farmers’ ‘Delhi Chalo‘ march is set to resume on Wednesday. Farmers from various states like Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh etc. are expected to take part in the protests. They want to put pressure on the central government to accept various demands, including a legal guarantee on Minimum Support Price (MSP) for crops, pension for farmers and farm labourers, farm debt waiver, and no hike in electricity tariffs.

Meanwhile, Delhi Police has increased security preparedness at the Tikri, Singhu and Ghazipur borders in view of the protests.

The farmers have been camping at multiple points in areas bordering the national capital since February 13. Multiple rounds of negotiations between farmer leaders and the central government have failed to resolve the situation.

In the latest round of talks on February 18, a panel of three Union ministers had made an offer to buy five crops – moong dal, urad dal, tur dal, maize, and cotton – from farmers at MSP for five years through central agencies. However, the protesting farmers turned down the offer and resumed protests.
