Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has also reached Vigyan Bhawan, it is expected that talk will be made between the farmers and the government.
The farmer leader of the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Samiti, SS Pandher said that the government wants to end our movement by trapping us. That is why she is talking about keeping the law on hold. They are throwing traps to cancel our performance, poison is hidden inside their sweets. So we have unanimously rejected his proposal in our meeting.
Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait also said before the meeting that we should get permission for the tractor march. We are performing with the tricolor, what is the harm in this, why should we not get permission.
Significantly, the day before today's meeting with farmers, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar met Home Minister Amit Shah. After the farmers rejected the government's proposal, the two leaders met to discuss how the problem was solved. Farmer leaders want the government to completely repeal all three agricultural laws and fix MSP on all crops for all farmers.
