NEW DELHI: Union Interior Minister Amit Shah, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar discussed the farmers’ protest against the three core agricultural laws with the BJP President , JP Nadda, Sunday night.
According to sources, the three leaders met at Nadda’s residence to discuss the issue.
Shah has already called on protesting farmers to move to the Burari farm in the national capital to organize their protests and said the Center was ready to hold talks with them as soon as they moved to the designated location.
Refusing the Center’s offer to hold talks once they move to the Burari farm, farmers protesting at the Delhi borders for four days against the new farm laws on Sunday said they will not accept any conditional dialogue and threatened to block the five entry points to the national capital.
A meeting of the farmers’ unions protesting with the Center has already been scheduled for December 3.
The Center has repeatedly asked farmers to cancel their strike and come to discuss, and the Union Minister has made such appeals.
The Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said a few days ago that the Center was ready to hold talks with farmers at any time, asking them to suspend their agitation and come to discuss.
After the land reform bills were passed in the monsoon parliamentary session, Singh, on behalf of the government, held discussions with various stakeholders from the agricultural sector.
