Govt proposes to suspend new farms laws for one and a half years

@AgriGoI
The 10th round of talks between the Central Government and 41 farmers' Unions was held at Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi yesterday. The meeting was attended by Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal and Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Som Prakash and representatives of farmers' unions. The next round of talks between the Central Government and farmers' Unions will be held on the 22nd of January.
 
Addressing media in New Delhi after the meeting, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that during discussion, the Government has proposed to the farmer Unions that the implementation of Farm laws should be kept on hold for a period of one to one and half years. He said, during this time representatives of farmer Unions and the Government can discuss all issues related to the farmers’ agitation so that an appropriate solution can be arrived at. Mr Toamr said, during the talks the representatives of the farmer unions said that they will discuss the Government’s proposal in detail and will come for dialogue tomorrow.
 
The Agriculture Minister once again reiterated that the farm laws are going to bring about revolutionary change in the life of farmers and in the agriculture sector. He said, the Government is committed to protecting the welfare of farmers and no one can take the farmers’ land away from them. Mr Toamr also appealed that clause wise discussion of the farm laws can take place for the talks to be meaningful and farmer Unions can also give alternatives other than repeal of the laws. He said, the Government is committed to continuing the dialogue process with an open mind and a pure intention.
 
Mr Toamr said that talks are progressing in the right direction and there is a possibility of finding a solution on the issues concerning farmers during next round of meeting.
