The meeting between farmer representatives and the Central government remained inconclusive on Tuesday as both parties failed to come to an understanding. Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said the meeting was good and the government will continue its dialogue with the protesting farmers. The next dialogue between protesters and the government will taken place on December 3. Farmer representatives said they will continue to explain to the government why the farmers feel that none of the changes introduced in the farm laws will benefit them.

Earlier today, the 32 farm unions accepted Centre’s offer to hold talks as their protest entered its sixth consecutive day. A large contingent of farmers are stationed on several points of entry into Delhi in a bid to convince the Centre to repeal the laws.

The delegations arrived statewise for discussions with farmers from Punjab arriving at Vigyan Bhawan for a dialogue with Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Railways Minister Piyush Goyal. Later, the government held meetings with delegations from Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Haryana. Earlier on Sunday, the farmers had rejected the Centre’s offer after the government had stressed them to move to the Burari grounds in New Delhi

Before meeting the farmers, Tomar had said that the government is ready to resolve the farmers issue but talks cannot happen on roads and the farmers needed to sit across the table to find a solution to the problem. The decision to hold talks with farmers have come after the Centre’s decision that Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will hold talks with farmers. Earlier on Monday, Home Minister Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh and Tomar met at BJP chief JP Nadda’s residence for a second meeting to resolve the issue.

Addressing the farmers at Ghazipur-Ghaziabad border, Naresh Tikait, the president of Bharatiya Kisaan Union, said the farmers want a final decision on matter. However, some groups are upset with the government’s decision. Punjab Kisan Sangarsh Committee’s joint secretary Sukhvinder S Sabhran said that there are more than 500 groups of farmers in the country, but the Centre has invited only 32 groups for talks.

The protesters have got worldwide support from celebrities, actors, singers and political leaders. Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday extended his support to farmers. He said Canada would always be there to defend the rights of the farmers and believe in the process of dialogue. He assured the farmers that he would try to reach out to the Indian authorities to highlight and raise their concerns. The Ministry of External Affairs has not taken Trudeau’s remarks well.

Police detained Bilkis Bano, 82, who emerged as the face of Shaheen Bagh’s anti-Citizenship Act protest, as she was reaching Singhu border to join farmers’ protest. She said she wanted to join the farmers to express her solidarity since she was a farmer’s daughter. She said the government should listen to the farmers.

Following the incident, the National Commission for Women sought an explanation from Bamhrah for her remarks. NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma wrote to Harjot Kaur and the reply must be communicated to the Commission within seven days.

Bihar’s Social Welfare Minister Madan Sahani also criticised the IAS remarks and said the officer should not have discouraged the girls.

Bamhrah on Wednesday responded to the criticism she has been facing online and claimed that there was a deliberate attempt to malign her during the seminar.

Bihar youth addicted to online gaming

A bizarre incident has come to light in Bihar’s Bhagalpur, where a youth created a fake story of his kidnapping and then demanded a ransom from his family members. Believing the story to be true, his father reached the Ghogha Police Station and informed them about the incident. After losing a lot of money in cricket betting on the online betting app, when Nandan did not understand anything, he planned to kidnap himself.

Narrating the incident, his father told the police that his son, Nandan Kumar, went for a morning walk at around 4 am and didn’t return for a while. They tried calling him, but his phone was switched off. He further said that he then received a call from Nandan from an unknown number. Nandan told his father to transfer Rs 50,000 as a ransom amount as he was kidnapped by three people.

Soon after, an alert was issued everywhere regarding the abduction of Nandan, a resident of NH 80-Phulkiya in the Ghogha police station area. After getting instructions from the senior police officer, prompt action was taken under the leadership of Kahalgaon SDPO Shivanand Singh. The police were conducting raids at suspicious places. Within two and a half hours of the complaint, the police safely found the allegedly abducted youth near the Mamalkha railway station.

The SHO of Ghogha police station, Mohd. Dilshad, SI Ajay Mishra, Jokhan Ram and Hareram Chaudhary, Kanhai Kumar of Rasalpur police station, and PSI Chandan Kumar of Sanhola police station took the matter into their hands.

During the interrogation, the youth told the officials that he created a fake story of three motorcyclists kidnapping him and blindfolding him to mislead the family members on the phone. On asking why he did this, Nandan told the police that he wanted the money for online gaming and that’s why he fabricated his kidnapping.

The officials said the youth is currently in police custody. Further action is being taken on this matter.

have right to safe and legal abortion

The Supreme Court of India on Thursday held that all women, irrespective of their marital status, have the right to safe and legal abortion. The Apex Court held that the marital status of women cannot be ground to deprive them right to abort unwanted pregnancies.

Under the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, both single and unmarried women have the right to abort the foetus till 24 weeks of pregnancy.

A bench comprising Justice DY Chandrachud, Justice JB Pardiwala, and Justice AS Bopanna made the ground-breaking judgement. Justice Chandrachud said if Rule 3bc was to be interpreted that it applies to married women it would mean that unmarried does not involve in sex.

The bench also stressed recognising marital rape though purely within the ambit of abortion. The court said under the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, the definition of rape must include marital rape.

He further said the artificial distinction between married and unmarried women cannot be sustained.

Highlighting differences in circumstances, he said a woman in a situation of emergency or disaster may decide to have the child but it may also impact the choice of a woman who may think pregnancy is not viable to keep.

While talking about reproductive autonomy being closely linked to bodily autonomy, the Apex Court ruled that the right to choose contraception, the number of children and whether or not to abort have to be taken without the influence of social factors.

The ground-breaking judgement by the Supreme Court of India comes after the court allowed a pregnant unmarried woman to abort her 24-week foetus in July this year. The court had sought a report from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on safe abortion of the girl’s circumstance and directed the hospital to form a team of two experts to report on whether abortion is possible without harming the girl.

The girl moved to Supreme Court after the Delhi High Court refused to grant her permission to terminate the pregnancy that was 23 weeks.
