The fifth round of talks between the government and farmer leaders will be held today to end the deadlock over the new farm laws. Farmer leaders are adamant on withdrawing all three agricultural laws, while the government is ready to change them. Thus the deadlock between the two sides remains intact. Meanwhile, a big meeting has been called at the Prime Minister’s House before discussion with the farmers’ organizations. Home Ministers Amit Shah and Rajnath Singh are present in this meeting. On the other hand, even on the Chilla border on the Delhi-Noida link road, the farmers are continuously protesting against the three agricultural laws. One farmer said that if no concrete result is found in today’s conversation with the government, then they will cordon the Parliament House.
Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Food Minister Piyush Goyal and Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Som Prakash will be present in the talks of the Fifth round today. They will discuss the points that the farmer leaders raised and will present a solution. According to sources, the government has worked on a possible solution to the provisions to which the farmer leaders have raised objections. The government has hoped to break the deadlock on Saturday so that the protests of the farmers should end at the earliest.
Farmers say that there are many flaws and loopholes in these laws and those cannot be amended. It needs to be seen whether the farmer leaders will accept the solutions offered by the government and end their protests. Meanwhile, Rakesh Tikait, leader of the Bharatiya Kisan Union, has threatened that the agitation of the farmers will intensify if the government fails to meet the demands.
