New Delhi, Dec 8 (MNN) The year-long farmers’ protests against the three central farm laws and in support of their other demands seemed to be headed toward an amicable settlement as the Indian government had sent on Wednesday ‘revised proposal’ on ending the deadlock and reportedly agreed to take back cases registered against them.

The farmer leaders were awaiting a written assurance on their demands from the government before they formally ended their protests on the Delhi borders and elsewhere.

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha said in the evening that a “consensus” had been arrived at within the conglomerate leadership on the revised draft proposal sent by the Indian government during the day.

“The Morcha confirms to have received a revised draft proposal from the government of India and that a consensus has been arrived at within SKM, accepting the proposal. Now, a formal communication signed on the government’s letterhead is awaited. The SKM will meet again tomorrow at noon at Singhu border to take a formal decision thereafter to lift the morchas,” the SKM leaders said.

The Morcha leadership was however silent on what all revised proposal had been received from the government.
