The government is ready to discuss every issue of agricultural law with farmers, new laws are for the benefit of farmers. If anyone has any problem, the government is ready for discussion.
On the farmers ‘movement, the Defense Minister said,’ Some forces have tried to create some misunderstandings among the farmers. We have also talked to many farmers. My only request to the farmers is that it should be discussed segment-wise and look for a ‘yes or no’ answer. We will pledge.

No country has the right to speak on the farmers’ movement
