Ready for a clause by clause discussion with farmers: Centre


With the protests against the Centre’s farm laws aggravating, the Centre on Monday said that it is ready for a clause by clause discussion with the agitating farmers.

The offer came from Union agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar who once again asserted that the new farm laws enacted by the Centre are meant for the welfare of the farmers.

Notably, the talks with the farmers have remained inconclusive so far. While the farmers have clarified that they are not going to settle for anything less than the withdrawal of the contentious legislations, the Centre is not ready for the same.

As the stalemate continues, the farmers have clarified that they will intensify their protests against the Centre. As part of the same, farmers’ leaders on Monday sat on a one-day hunger strike and staged demonstrations across the country.

Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra has said that the party is winning all elections since the notification of the farm laws as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a true sympathizer of the farmers.
