Amit Shah's Crucial Meeting Over Farmers Protest:- The farmers across the country are protesting against the introduced farm laws by the Centre. The negotiations between the Centre and the Farmer Unions were not successful and the protests are happening for the past couple of months. The opposition leaders slammed the Centre for ignoring the farmers. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his recent speeches made it clear that the BJP government is never against the farmers and they pitched the new farm laws to support them. The governments of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Punjab are facing the heat due to the agitation of the farmers and they conveyed the same to the Centre and the leaders. The BJP leadership is now keen to settle the issue at the earliest.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah chaired a crucial meeting at the national headquarters of BJP today. Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, BJP Chief JP Nadda and BL Santosh (BJP General Secretary) along with the legislators attended the meeting. Amit Shah urged the legislators to hold some crucial meetings with the farmers and their unions to resolve the issue at the earliest. Amit Shah wanted the legislators to get in touch with the local khaps and community groups to explain the position of the government. The Centre is now worried that the farmers agitation will turn out to be a dent and threat for the party in all these states where the agitation is severe.
The legislators too explained about the situations in the states and conveyed their message to Amit Shah through the meeting. Punjab is heading for polls this year and Uttar Pradesh will have polls next year. The Centre is now ready to talk with the Farmer Unions on specific issues.
