Farmer protest continues against farm laws, Amit Shah's offer for early talks rejected
Punjab farmers who are protesting against the Centre's new farm laws have rejected Union home minister Amit Shah's proposal for a discussion before December 3rd, if they agree to move to a designated protest site. The farmers said the government should have approached with "an open heart" and not put preconditions. The farmers' decision came after a meeting this morning. This comes after PM Narendra Modi reiterated in his Mann Ki Baat that the new farm laws have opened the doors for better opportunities for the farmers. The farmers have decided to sit on the borders of Delhi for now. Swaraj India chief Yogendra Yadav is part of a 7-member committee of farmers that took the decision to turn down the offer.
