Farmer's Protest: Government may agree to amend Farm Laws, PM meets Top Ministers

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar met at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s house, hours before the fifth round of talks between the government and protesters over the contentious farm laws, say sources adding the centre may consider amending the laws.

Thousands of farmers camping around Delhi-borders are insistent on the laws being repealed. Two rounds of talks this week have fallen through despite repeated assurances from the centre on the minimum support price or MSP.

Amid the COVID pandemic, this is the biggest farmers’ protest in years and numbers continue to grow at Delhi’s borders.

Today’s talks, the third in a week, will take place at 2 pm at Delhi’s Vigyan Bhawan where Mr. Tomar and Union Minister Piyush Goyal will be present. According to sources, PM Modi is believed to brief about the changes in the contentious laws at the first such meeting at his house amid the protest.
