No settlement resolved between Central and farmers, next round of bilateral settlement to take place on 15 January

The eighth round of talks between the central government and farmer leaders at Vigyan Bhawan regarding the new agricultural laws has ended. Agriculture Minister Narendra Tomar and Union Minister Piyush Goyal were present here.

Both met Home Minister Amit Shah just before the meeting. At the same time, after the meeting between the farmer and the government ends today, the next meeting will now be after January 15. At the same time, the farmers’ protest on the Delhi border continues on the 44th day on Friday. The Agriculture Minister had hoped to find a solution in today’s talks.

Explain that the protesting farmers are still adamant. On Thursday, before the talks with the Center, he took out a tractor march on the Delhi border and asked to continue the protest till his demands were met. The Center said it is ready to consider any proposal other than withdrawing the law.

It is believed that the government can present a new formula to the farmers during this talks to be held in Vigyan Bhawan. An expert committee may be formed to review the laws. Apart from this, a concession can be considered with some conditions to the states that object to the laws. In this, some conditions can also be added with the role of states.

Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, along with Union Ministers Piyush Goyal and Som Prakash, is leading the government’s talks with the farmers union leaders. The talks to be held today are very important, as the previous talks on January 4 were inconclusive.

On December 30, there was little success in the sixth round of talks. During this time the government accepted two demands of agitating farmers. Apart from this, talks of other visits have been fruitless.
