11th round of talks between Centre and farmer unions held in New Delhi

@AgriGoI
The eleventh round of talks between the Central Government and the farmers' unions was held in New Delhi today which remained inconclusive. Talking to the media after the meeting, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said, there is no problem in the three laws but government had offered to the implementation of three farm laws on hold for a period of one to one and half years so that issues related to farmers' agitation can be discussed to find a solution. 

He said, the government always maintained that it is ready to consider alternatives rather than repealing the farm laws. He said, the Centre gave many proposals to the protesting farmers to end the protest, but no resolution is possible when sanctity of agitation is lost. He said, the agitation is being done mainly by those from Punjab and some from few other States. Mr. Tomar alleged that some external forces are also trying to ensure that agitation continues and these forces are against the farmers' interests. He asserted that farm laws passed by Parliament are in the interest of farmers.

The Minister informed that farmers' unions have been told to get back to the government by tomorrow with their decision on its proposal to suspend the implementation of three farm laws and find a solution. Mr. Tomar said, one should be hopeful and the government will wait till tomorrow to hear the final decision of the farmers' unions.


During the last round of talks, the government had proposed to the farmers' unions that the Centre is ready to keep the implementation of three farm laws on hold for a period of one to one and half years. The government had said, during this period, representatives of farmers' unions and the Centre can discuss all the issues related to the farmers' agitation so that an appropriate solution can be found. However, farmers' unions rejected the proposal reiterating their demand to repeal the farm laws.
