Chandigarh. To remove the displeasure of the farmers, now the Punjab government has decided to organize ‘Sarkar-Kisan Milini’ programme. The first dialogue between the farmers and the government will take place on February 12 at the Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) campus, where Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann will spend time with the farmers to listen to their grievances.
The government has held a meeting on January 6 to discuss this issue. The second meeting will be held on January 20 to finalize the details. In a media report, an official has been quoted as saying that farmers get involved in protests and create problems for the general public as well.
Now the Punjab government has decided to bring the farmers together on one platform and hold talks with CM Bhagwant Mann. A Punjab government official told that other cabinet ministers will also be called for a meeting on this matter. The official said that the farmers were earlier sitting on a dharna outside the CM’s residence in Sangrur regarding their demands and now they have surrounded the toll plaza.
They were also protesting against a private brewery in Zira since July last year. Which is over now. Due to this the government is worried that the farmers are not in control. This also sends a wrong message as the opposition parties keep harping on this issue.

Therefore it is felt that dialogue with the farmers will help in resolving the issues. Dialogue can solve many issues. During the Sarkar-Kisan Milini, various agricultural experts will be involved and several sessions will be held. Punjab government official said that we will get 150 farmers from each district in the programme. There will be accommodation for 6,000 farmers. Experts from PAU, Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (GADVASU) and officials from the power and agriculture departments will hold discussions with the farmers.
