As the reports are coming in, the ninth round of meeting between Farmer Union leaders and Centre government has resulted unconclusive. Reports have suggested that the talks between the two sides remain blank even after the lunch when it was supposed that MSP Guarantee act was to be discussed.
Once again the meeting between farmer unions and Centre government has been ended unconclusive and the deadlock was maintained by the farmer union leaders, in response to the Centre's appeal to reach to the resolution.
Today's talks with farmers unions were not decisive. We will hold talks again on 19th January. We are positive to reach a solution through talks. The government is concerned about the farmers protesting in cold conditions, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said after the meeting.
Taking a dig at the remark of Rahul Gandhi, Union Minister said "Congress party laughs at statements & actions of Rahul Gandhi, it mocks at him. I'd like to tell him that in their 2019 election manifesto, Congress had promised that they'll bring this reform. If he doesn't remember, he should read the manifesto again."
On being asked on Centre's reaction at formation of Committee by the Supreme Court, Union Minister said that the government will present its side before the committee constituted by the Supreme Court when asked.
The ongoing meeting discussing farm laws between Union Govt and farmers did not come to a resolution before the lunch break. The MSP Guarantee act was to be discussed after the break. Ahead of the meeting, Government welcoming the Supreme Court order regarding the farmers' agitation decided to put forth its views before the committee (appointed by the court).
Government is trying to resolve the issue through dialogue, said Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar while interacting with the media personnel. Next Centre-farmers meeting will be held on 19 January, said official sources.
