Farmers protesting against the now-repealed agriculture laws and in support of other demands announced on Thursday they had suspended their agitation. They would leave the protest sites on Delhi’s borders on December 11.
Protesters were seen removing tents at the Singhu border on Thursday afternoon. The Hindu reported the farmers would disperse after a “grand celebration” on Saturday.
The Samyukt Kisan Morcha announced, after a meeting on Thursday, it had accepted the government’s proposals submitted on Wednesday.
Farmer leader Gurnam Singh Chaduni told mediapersons, “We will hold a review meeting on January 15. If government doesn’t fulfil its promises, we could resume our agitation.”
The farmers groups had received a letter from the government containing promises of forming a committee on MSP and withdrawing cases against the protesters immediately. The letter noted, “UP and Haryana have given in-principle consent” on issue of compensation to farmers.
