40 farmer leaders are holding a meeting at one of the Delhi-Haryana borders to discuss follow-up actions after Thursday’s meeting with the government failed to end the deadlock over the contentious new farm laws. The farmer representatives stuck to their demand for the repeal of the laws and even refused lunch, tea and water offered to them during almost seven-hour-long meeting in central Delhi. The third round of meeting with the centre will be held on Saturday. Farmer leaders have also given a call for a nation-wide protest Saturday . The protest – the biggest by farmers in years – has entered the ninth day. Several roads leading to Delhi continue to be blocked with farmers camped out at four busy border points of the national capital – Singhu, Noida, Ghazipur and Tikri – to press their demands, under heavy police deployment.
