Farmers call off stir, to vacate Delhi borders on December 11
New Delhi, December 9, 2021
Farmers organisations today ended their agitation, launched more than a year ago, after the Centre handed over to them a revised proposal on their demands.
This was announced by the Samyukta Kisan Morcha at Singhu on the Delhi-Haryana border.
The farmers said they would vacate the Delhi borders on Saturday and meet on January 15.
Soon after the Centre's revised proposal came, the Samyukta Kisan Morcha, the umbrella body of the farmers' unions spearheading the protests, huddled into a meeting to chart out their future course of action.
Following the revocation of the three controversial Central farm laws, the Centre had come up with a proposal which was accepted by the farmers. Based on their demand, the Centre has come out with its proposals in writing.
Meanwhile, the farmers protesting at the Singhu border have started removing their tents. They were also seen exchanging sweets with each other.
