The protesting farmers opposing the centre’s new farm laws have agreed to a sixth round of talks – scheduled for Wednesday – after yesterday’s meeting yielded no breakthrough on the repeal of the three laws. After the meeting Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said a new proposal would be placed before the farmers after discussions within the government. The government on Saturday proposed new rules for free markets provided for by The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, one of the laws being opposed by the farmers. The farmers’ representatives said they would intensify their agitation. They have called for a nationwide blockade on December 8. Congress has decided to support the Bharat Bandh on December 8. We will be demonstrating the same at our party offices. It will be a step strengthening Rahul Gandhi’s support to the farmers. We will ensure that the demonstration is successful said, Congress Spokesperson Pawan Khera.
