Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Monday said that the central government is committed to find a logical solution on all relevant issues as 40 farmer unions are invited for talks on December 30. This statement from Tomar comes when the farmers have threatened to intensify the protests in the coming days, PTI reported.
Tomar, addressing a virtual event organised by Confederation of NGOs of Rural India (CNRI) pointed fingers at the opposition saying that the 'wall of lies is never strong'.
"Soon, some way out will emerge and we will reach towards the solution. Everyone knows that the wall of lies is never strong. Truth is truth. There is going to be a time when people will start accepting the truth," Tomar said.
"The laws have started reaching farmers. Many peasants are "thinking positive of these legislations, but there is "confusion in some sections of the farmers. I am hopeful we will be successful in clearing their concerns," he added.
Meanwhile, the government's proposal caught pace as in a letter to the unions, Agriculture Secretary Sanjay Aggarwal has invited them for holding talks at 2 pm on December 30 at Vigyan Bhavan in the national capital. This invite came after the unions had proposed talks on December 29.
"It's been over a month now that thousands of farmers, especially from Punjab, Haryana and parts of Uttar Pradesh, are camping at Delhi borders seeking repeal of the three farm laws. They have threatened to intensify their stir in the coming days if their demands are not fulfilled," Aggarwal said as per PTI reports.
The Wednesday meeting comes after five rounds between the farm unions and the central government have not reaped any results.
