New Delhi, Dec 5 (TIWN) The Congress has stepped up the demand of immediately scrapping the farm laws in the wake of the farmers' protest in the national capital. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet,"Accepting less than scrapping of three black farm laws will be deceit to farmers and the country."

The Congress leader’s reaction comes even as the meeting between the farmers and the government is going on to resolve the issue.  Talks between the Centre and over 34 farmer union representatives has started here, even as the farmers protest entered the eighth straight day with thousands sitting on different Delhi borders blocking essential supply chains to the city.  Like the previous round of talks held on December 1, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Tomar and Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Minister Piyush Goyal are leading the meeting, which is expected to play a major role in farmers’ future course of action on whether they would continue the protest or withdraw it.
