New Delhi, Dec 03: Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh is all set to meet Home Minister Amit Shah at his residence in Delhi today, ahead of the second round of talks between the Centre and farmer leaders. The Chief Minister will hold deliberations with Shah in an effort to work out an amicable solution to the deadlock.
