The stalemate between the government and the protesters demanding a repeal of the three new agri laws continues without any signs of a breakthrough.
Farmers' protest at several Delhi borders entered 29th day on Thursday. The Central government once again reached out to the protesting farmers on Thursday as it has written a letter addressed to the agitating farmers, asking them to decide the date and time for the next round of talks.
"Govt is committed to reaching logical solutions of the issues raised by you," the letter reads.
Farmer unions protesting against the new farm laws have written a letter to the government urging it not to repeat the "meaningless amendments" which have been rejected before and to come up with a concrete proposal in writing.
Replying to the Centre's offer for talks, the farmer leaders, who have rejected a proposal for amending the agri laws, said that they are waiting for the government to come to the table "with an open mind", adding if it "takes one step, farmers will take two".
Several talks between farmers' and the government till date have remained inconclusive with scores of farmers sitting at various borders across Delhi as a mark of protest against new farm laws.
Farmers are protesting at the borders of Delhi since November 26 against the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
