Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said on Monday that the government is in touch with them to fix the next date of talks with farmers. Significantly, the farmer unions have intensified their agitation against the three agricultural laws of the Center and on Monday they went on a day-long hunger strike.

Tomar assured that the meeting will definitely take place. We are in touch with farmers. He said that the government is ready for talks at any time. Farmer leaders have to decide when they are ready for the next meeting.

Tomar further said that the members of the All India Farmers Coordination Committee came from Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Maharashtra, Bihar and supported the agriculture bill and submitted a letter. He said that the Modi government has done this for the welfare of farmers and they welcome and support it.

The protesters are leading the government’s dialogue with representatives of 40 unions of farmers. He is joined by Union Minister for Commerce and Industry and Food, Piyush Goyal and Minister of State for Commerce and Industry, Som Prakash.

The five rounds of talks between the Center and the farmer leaders so far have been inconclusive.

Tomar also met Union Home Minister Amit Shah today and discussed how to end the deadlock. He later met a delegation of farmers led by the All India Farmers Coordination Committee (AIKCC) which has supported the farmers laws. This is the fourth group to support the laws in the last two weeks.

Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister Anand Sharma said on Monday that steps related to reforms should be taken at the national level by concurrence and the government should find a solution through dialogue in the case of the ongoing farmers’ movement.

While addressing the annual general meeting of industry chamber ‘FICCI’, Sharma also urged the government to show a more lenient approach in providing financial help to those affected due to the corona epidemic and to bring the economy back on track. Arrange for maximum incentive package.

According to the Congress leader, the country has lost 10 per cent of GDP and it will take another year to reach the state of 2019-20. He said that we are seeing today that there are demonstrations regarding agricultural laws.

Reforms should be on a partnership basis, not one-sided. There should be deliberations in this context. Nothing should be done in haste and without consent. We are seeing the result of doing this. There are agitations, conflicts and lack of faith.

Sharma said that I personally believe that everything can be resolved through dialogue and discussion. Chief Ministers should also be involved in this process and as a nation one must end the crisis.
