Chandigarh, December 10

With the farmers’ protest in and around Delhi against the recently enacted farm laws entering 15th day, the Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) on Thursday reiterated that the agitation would not be withdrawn till the three Acts are repealed.

A day after rejecting the Centre’s proposal on changes in the three farm laws, the BKU also demanded a Bill on minimum support price (MSP). “The proposal has no mention of the withdrawal of the laws. They (central government) wants amendment in them but we want these laws to be repealed. We don’t want changes. We will end our protest only when these laws are withdrawn,” BKU spokesperson Rakesh Tikait told ANI, adding the government is interested only in ending the protest.

“The government has no policy on the MSP. Like the government brought the three Bills, they should also bring a Bill on the MSP,” he demanded.
