Govt invites farmers for talks on Wed

at 7:04 pm

New Delhi (NVI): The Central Government has invited farmers, protesting over recently passed farm bills, for talks on Wednesday at 2 pm. This will be the sixth time that the government and members of the farming community will meet to seek a way out of the deadlock.

Notably, the Supreme Court has ordered the formation of a committee to resolve the protest over the new laws. Farmers have been protesting for over a month now at Delhi borders, demanding the repeal of the newly passed three laws that are aimed at modernising the mandi system in the country and exponentially raising farmers’ income.

The Union Agriculture Ministry today invited more representatives of 40 unions for the meeting at 2 PM in Vigyan Bhawan.
