New Delhi: A five-member committee of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) will decide on Wednesday on ending the year-long farmers agitation after the Center sent five proposals on sticky issues, including MSP.
In its proposal, the Center has clarified its stand on Minimum Support Price, withdrawal of cases against the protesters and the electricity bill.
According to sources, 90 per cent of farmer outfits of Punjab were satisfied with the proposal of the government.

“Government’s proposal says after we end the movement, then only will they withdraw cases (against farmers). We are apprehensive about it. The government should immediately begin the procedure. Final decision to be taken at tomorrow’s meeting at 2 pm,” the Samyukt Kisan Morcha said.
BKU leader Gurnam Singh Charuni said the Center should follow the Punjab model while giving compensation to the kin of over 700 deceased farmers.
“We want the Center to follow Punjab model. Rs 5 lakh compensation and a job as announced by Punjab government should be implemented by Govt of India as well,” ANI quoted Gurnam Singh Charuni as saying.
Despite the withdrawal of the three farm laws by the Centre, farmers had continued with their protest over pending demands. On November 29, a bill was passed in Parliament to repeal the three laws.
Farmers had demanded a legal guarantee on MSP for crops, compensation to the kin of the farmers who died during the agitation and the withdrawal of cases against the protests.
Last week, Union Home Minister Amit Shah spoke to a senior farmer leader over phone.
Braving the summer heat and chilly winter, thousands of farmers, mostly from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at several Delhi border points, like Singhu and Tikri, since November 26, 2020.
