Meena, in one of his tweets, said that the ruling Narendra Modi government takes only minutes to sign deals with corporates like Adanis and Ambanis and but why it is taking so long to accept farmers' demands. Meema is a political activist. He stated that no one is more patriotic than farmers. All India Parisangh, a confederation of SC/ST also supported the strike call by Tribal Army. However, no major trade union has supported the strike call until now.
Tweet by Hansraj Meena:
प्रिय, किसानों। किसानपुत्रों। किसान शुभचिंतकों। केंद्र की @narendramodi सरकार अडानी-अम्बानी से विभिन्न एग्रीमेंट के समझौता पर हस्ताक्षर करने में चंद मिनीट लगाती है। फिर देश के अन्नदाता किसानों की मांग पर समझौता में इतनी देरी क्यों? 5 दिसंबर को देशव्यापी भारत बंद का ऐलान करते हैं।

Earlier in the day, the fourth round of meeting between the Centre and leaders of farm unions representing farmers protesting against recently enacted farm laws concluded without any concrete solution. The meeting was held at New Delhi's Vigyan Bhawan. The next round of talks is scheduled to take place on December 5 to break the deadlock over the controversial farm laws which came into force in September this year.
After the laws were enacted, farmers, especially from Punjab and Haryana, are staging a protest to repeal. Farmers fear that due to these laws, they will not get minimum support price, and corporates will take advantage of their produce.
