Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Railway Minister PiyushGoyal met Home Minister Amit Shah before the discussion.

About Yesterday’s Meeting 

Just like previous rounds of the meeting, farmers were telling about the laws withdrawal, and Central Government gave the proposal of amendment in the farm laws. And, as per the sources, Central Government said that these farm laws can’t be withdrawn, as many farmers are in the favour of these laws. And farmers’ leaders are continuously repeating their demand to repeal the laws.

As soon as the meeting started, Central Government said that these laws can’t be withdrawn. During the meeting, angry farmers refused to eat langar. They said, we will neither eat roti nor drink tea, and even after the lunch break, they were sitting in the meeting hall.

And, this round of the meeting was also inconclusive. And the next round of the meeting will be on 15 January.

Fight will Continue

After the failed negotiations and inconclusive meeting, farmers’ organizations said they will continue their fight. All India Kisan Sabha General Secretary, HananMollahsaid, “A heated debate, we said that we do not want anything other than the withdrawal of these farm laws. He said, “We won’t go to any court, either these farm laws will be withdrawn or our fight will continue. And, we will have a parade on 26 January as per the planning.”
