What are the demands of farmers?

 

Pandher in a video statement said, "Yesterday SKM non-political, KMM made big announcements. Among them we will question the BJP as well as the opposition parties. We will ask the opposition parties why they did not give a clear answer on pulling out India from the WTO. How will they punish the preparatory of Lakhimpur Kheri if they form a government? Some parties gave a positive response to some of our demands. But, they are not speaking on our every demand, especially on MNREGA and Rs 700 wage."

 

"In Haryana, there were multiple meetings. In Chandigarh, BJP Punjab Chief Sunil Jakhar had said that they are ready to hold talks with farmers. They are ready to answer anything. Therefore, we have accepted their challenge and by April 23 they should finish this. But, whenever we ask something they say that these are big matters and higher officials can answer this. Therefore, PM Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and JP Nadda should come by April 23 and we will ask them questions," added Pandher.
