Kisaan Andolan LIVE: Whether to talk to the government or not? Farmers will decide in the meeting today
Farmer leaders said on Monday that if the government presents a ‘concrete solution’, they are always ready for talks, but claimed that there is nothing new in the Center’s letter regarding the next date for talks. So far, 5 rounds of talks have been held between the government and farmer organizations, which have been fruitless. Negotiations were suspended on 9 December after the fifth round of negotiations, as the farmer unions refused to accept the Center’s proposal to amend the laws and give written assurances to continue the minimum support price.
