Jaipur: Union Minister of State for Rajasthan Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday said that the government has not given up on the government Decision He said inviting farmer associations for talks was “a step in the right direction”, but taken too late.
Gehlot tweeted: “The Center’s invitation to farmer associations for talks is a step in the right direction but has been taken too late. There is growing concern not only in the country but also in other countries.
Rajasthan CM called on Narendra Modi to settle the matter.
Gehlot tweeted, “PM Modi ji must come forward to solve this crisis and meet the real demands of the farmers.”
Meanwhile, shortly after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed concern over the ongoing peasant protests in India, Gehlot said there was growing concern over the issue in foreign countries.
On Monday (local time), Trudeau said Canada will always be there to defend the right to peaceful protest, during a Facebook video conversation hosted by Canadian MP Bardish Chagar to mark the 551st birthday of Gurupurab or Gurunanak.
“I would be remiss if I did not start by identifying news coming out of India about the farmers’ protest. The situation is relevant and we are all very worried about family and friends,” Trudeau said.
India reacted sharply to Trudeau’s “informal” comments and said these statements were “unnecessary”, especially in relation to the internal affairs of a democratic nation.
“It is also good not to misrepresent diplomatic dialogue for political purposes,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Anurag Srivastava said in a statement. Srivastava’s remarks came after Trudeau expressed concern over the ongoing peasant protest in India against the three agrarian laws and stated that Ottawa had reached out to Indian authorities.
Farmers are protesting against the recently enacted agrarian laws in Delhi and its borders – Farmers’ Production and Trade (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, Price Guarantee and Agricultural Services Act, 2020 Farmer (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement, and Essential Commodities (Amendment) ) Act, 2020.
