No meeting ground, farmers to ring in new year at Delhi borders

Dec 30, 2020 20:17 IST

Protesting farmers will ring in the new year at the borders of the country’s national capital as their sixth round of talks with the Central government failed to end the deadlock despite agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar expressing confidence that the over month-long stir will end soon. After the conclusion of day-long parleys, Tomar told a waiting media outside the Vigyan Bhawan that talks were held in a cordial atmosphere and a consensus has been reached on the issues of stubble burning and power tariff—the two lesser demands of the protesting farmers. A decision on the legal sanction of the minimum support price and annulling the allegedly pro-corporate farm laws however remained elusive. A meeting is now slated for January 4, next year.
