Govt invites farmers for fresh talks to end deadlock

New Delhi, Dec 21 (TIWN) The Centre has invited representatives of the protesting farmers for fresh talks to end the deadlock as their agitation against the new farm laws entered its 25th day on Sunday.

The letter, written by Joint Secretary, Agriculture, Vivek Aggarwal to the farmers' representatives who had earlier participated in talks with the government, said: "Please provide a list of apprehensions and give appropriate dates so fresh talks can be initiated in Vigyan Bhavan so that the protest ends soon."  In the letter, the government said that it is serious about farmers issues and had held many rounds of talks and also that it is trying to talk to farmers' unions separately and take their feedback.  The government had held five rounds of talks with the farmers' union with the last one held with Union Home Minister Amit Shah but the farmers had rejected the offers given by the government.  The farmers, on December 9, had unanimously rejected the proposed amendments suggested by the Centre to the three controversial farm laws and had sought a complete rollback of the laws.
