NEW DELHI: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday reached out to thousands of farmers who have been camping in and outside Delhi to protest against the three laws passed by the Centre recently. “The government is ready to deliberate on every problem and demand of the farmers,” Shah said in a video message.
Shah said the Centre will hold talks with the agitating farmers’ unions on December 3 and if they want to hold discussions before that, they will have to shift their protests at the place finalised by the government.
“If farmers’ unions want to hold discussions before December 3 then, I want to assure you all that as soon as you shift your protest to structured place, the government will hold talks to address your concerns the very next day.
Thousands of farmers marching from Punjab as part of their “Delhi Chalo” campaign against the Centre’s laws, braved watercannons and tear gas shells in Haryana to reach the Delhi border on Friday. However, they were not allowed into the national capital. As the protests continued, the Centre, which looks after Delhi’s law and order, relented and fixed a spot for their agitation. (Agency)
