Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar replied to farmer leaders during their meeting at Vigyan Bhavan in Delhi on Thursday, 03 December 2020, says ANI. The government has given indications over MSP. It seems that their stand over MSP will be fine. The talks have made a little progress, says  Rakesh Tikait, spokesperson for Bharatiya Kisan Union,  after today’s meeting with the central government over Farm laws. The issue is about the complete rollback of laws. Not only one but discussions will also be held on several issues. Farmers want the laws to be taken back. Government wants to talk about MSP and amendment to the Acts, Rakesh Tikait, added. The 7-hour  meeting of farmer leaders with the central government concluded today and have agreed to meet again on  Saturday, December 5.

That is why I appeal to farmers to end their agitation so that the people of Delhi don’t face problems that they are facing due to protests’’. Talks have made little progress. In the half time, it seemed that today’s meeting will yield no result, in the second half, it seemed that there is the pressure of farmers’ agitation, on govt. Talks were held in a conducive atmosphere, said  Harjinder Singh Tanda, Azaad Kisan Sangharsh Committee.
