Meeting with Shah positive, govt to come up with proposal: Farmer leader
A day after Union Home minister Amit Shah's meeting with farmer leaders failed to break the logjam, the government will send fresh proposals to the farmers over the three agriculture laws that are at the heart of agitation. The farmers' leaders have called a meeting on Wednesday afternoon to discuss whether to consider the government's proposal.
Earlier on Tuesday night, Amit Shah met farmer leaders at the PUSA institute. According to a PTI report, Shah offered to amend the three laws. But the farmer leaders rejected the government's offer, saying they will settle for nothing less than the scrapping. Shah's efforts were aimed at ending the protests on Delhi's various borders by thousands of farmers, especially from Punjab and Haryana. Today is the 14th day of the stir.
