New Delhi: As farmers intensified their agitation, Union ministers Narendra Singh Tomar and Som Parkash met Home Minister Amit Shah at his residence in Delhi.

The ministers were accompanied by BJP leaders from Punjab. However, it was not immediately known what transpired in the meeting.

Tomar and Parkash, along with their ministerial colleague Piyush Goyal, had led the government's negotiations with the protesting farmers.

Thousands of farmers, mainly from the northern states of Punjab and Haryana, have been protesting at Delhi borders 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, enacted by Parliament in September. The AAP had voted against the three laws in both Houses of Parliament.

Farmers' leaders have held several rounds of talks with the government but all of them remained inconclusive so far. Farmers are demanding that three farm laws be withdrawn which they say will leave them at the mercy of large corporations and override legal safeguards.

Meanwhile, BJP ally and Haryana Deputy CM Dushyant Chautala has hinted that the next round of talks between farmers and centre could be held soon.
