Government invites farmers for fresh talks on December 30

The central government has called protesting farm union leaders for a meeting on December 30. The meeting will be held at 2 pm at Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi.

The fresh round of talks invite has come to end the deadlock over the agriculture laws that has led massive protests at various border points of the national capital for over the last one month.

Earlier today, leaders of about 25 farmer organisations met and handed over to Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar a letter in support of new agriculture laws, passed in the month of September.

The Centre has held several rounds of talks with farmer unions over new laws but failed to break the deadlock.

Thousands of farmers have been  protesting since November 26, demanding repeal of three farm laws.
