The Union’s Agriculture Minister, Narendra Singh Tomar, on Monday called the government’s proposal to suspend new agricultural laws for 1 to 1.5 years as « the best deal » and hoped the protesting farmers’ unions would soon reconsider their decision The talks between the government and 41 protesting trade unions have not remained conclusive even after eleven discussion rounds. During the 10th round of talks the government had come down and made a proposal to repeal the new laws for 1 to 1.5 years, which was rejected by the unions.

In the 11th round of talks, the government called Asks the unions to reconsider the proposal and forward their final decision.

« The government made the best deal to the farmers unions. I hope they will let us know their decision after they have discussed it with each other. As soon as they communicate , we will move it forward, « Tomar told PTI.

After the 11th round of talks, the minister had announced that there would be no further talks, but he was ready to take the farmers’ final decision on the government’s offer In the meantime, the Supreme Court-appointed Agricultural Law Committee is due to hold its second round of consultations with agriculturists on January 27th and agricultural organizations.

Despite the severe cold, thousands of farmers – particularly from Punjab, Haryana and parts of western Uttar Pradesh – have camped on the borders of Delhi to repeal the new laws and provide a legal guarantee for one of the Government set minimum support price to guarantee agricultural crops.

The protest of farmers on the borders of Delhi has reached its 61st day and even farmers in other states like Maharashtra have started to support them.
