Farmers Reject Centre's Proposal, To Continue Delhi March From Wednesday

The borders around Delhi are likely to witness a showdown again from Wednesday as protesting farmers have rejected the government’s proposal of a five-year contract to buy three types of pulses, maize, and cotton at the old minimum support price. 

The announcement by the protesting farmers came hours after the Samyukt Kisan Morcha, an umbrella organisation of farmer unions which is not part of the current protests, also criticised the MSP proposal. 

Addressing a press conference at the Shambhu border, between Punjab and Haryana, on Monday, farmer leader Sarwan Singh Pandher declared that the proposal is not acceptable to them and the protesting farmers will resume their march towards Delhi in a peaceful manner from Wednesday.
