INDIA: Another round of government-farmers talks inconclusive
Sacrificing farmers on the altar of profit
NEW DELHI: The ninth round of talks between the Centre and the farmers’ unions over the three contentious agriculture laws concluded on Friday, 15 January, with Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar saying they were not decisive. The next round of talks will be held at 12 pm on 19 January.
The discussions took place over the three farm laws in a cordial atmosphere, but couldn’t reach a decisive state, Tomar reportedly said after the talks at Delhi’s Vigyan Bhawan on Friday.
“We are positive of reaching a solution through talks. The government is concerned about the farmers protesting in cold conditions,” he was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
