Chandigarh December 7

The SAD patriarch, Parkash Singh Badal, in a letter to the PM, has asked him to 'show magnanimity' and scrap the three controversial farm laws "as the first step" towards resolving the crisis. Sounding the alarm, he noted: "The scars of wounds already inflicted by the farmers' protest will take a long time to heal."

He demanded cent per cent procurement of crops at the MSP, stressing that this must be made a legal right of the farmers. Drawing the PM's attention to "how politics of confrontation has fractured our social fabric," he said consultative processes alone led to consensus, and consensus alone could avoid confrontation. "The laws that have pushed the country into deep turmoil must be withdrawn without making the farmers and their families endure any more suffering. Not just the farmers, the issue affects the economic fabric of the entire country," he added. — TNS
