Farmers’ Protest: Talks Fail Again as Farmer Leaders Resort to Silent Protest, Try to Corner Govt on Rollback With ‘Yes or No’ Posters

Farmer leaders meeting three Union ministers for fifth round of negotiations have rejected their offer to amend contentious provisions of the new farm laws, sticking to the demand for total repeal. The representatives of 40 farmers’ unions also ruled out further dialogue and threatened to walk out of the crucial negotiations taking place at Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi. Traffic in the national capital moved bumper to bumper on key routes again today as thousands of protesting farmers are staying put at the borders with Haryana and Uttar Pradesh for the 10th day. Farmers’ groups met three Union ministers on Saturday for the fifth round of talks amid the ongoing protests over the Centre’s new farm laws.
