Farmers In Huddle As Talks With Centre Fail, Round 2 Tomorrow

Farmers’ organisations met at one of the Delhi-Haryana borders to decide their strategy, a day after they turned down the centre’s second pitch for a committee to discuss the contentious farm laws against which they have been holding massive protests near Delhi. The protest – the biggest by farmers in years – has entered the seventh day, with thousands of people from several states camped out on the outskirts of Delhi. Union Home Minister Amit Shah, meanwhile, met with Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and his cabinet colleague Piyush Goyal at his home to discuss yesterday’s meeting with the farmers. Farmer leaders on Tuesday rejected the government proposal to form a five-member committee to look into the objections and study the concerns. They told the government that such committees have led to no results and outcomes in the past.”Now is not the time for a committee,” sources quoted farmers’ representatives as saying at the meeting with three central ministers on Tuesday evening.
