Indian farmers decline proposed Government deal, set to continue march on New Delhi

Indian farmers camping outside New Delhi rejected a government proposal for a five-year guaranteed price contract for certain crops, demanding guaranteed prices for all their crops.

In addition to guaranteed prices, the farmers also want the government to double their incomes, provide pensions, and waive loans, claiming that agriculture is no longer viable due to stagnant crop prices and rising costs.

The farmers plan to resume their march on New Delhi on Wednesday, resuming a move that began last week and was led by farmers from Punjab and Haryana.

According to protesters, the Indian government’s failure to fulfill promises made after a previous protest in 2021 has led to the current protests.
