Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar today said that the government has given a written proposal to farmers on their concerns on the three Central Farm Acts and two other laws. “Whenever you are ready, the government is always ready for talks,” griculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said reaching out to farmers who yesterday decided to harden stance after the Centre’s nine proposals in writing   

Listing out all the pro-famer and agriculture measures taken by the Narendra Modi government he said the constant attempt has ben to make agriculture and villages ‘atmanirbhar’ (self-reliant) Till the time villages and agriculture are made self-reliant the country cannot be made self- reliant

“Farmers were not forthcoming on specific issues and were sticking to demand of rolling back the Acts…we tried to cull out their concerns and addressed them. We have given proposals to allay their misgivings. I will request them to come forward for talks,” Tomar and Consumer Affairs Minister Piyush Goyal said  

“Despite giving an answer to all their issues, still they are not ready to reach to any conclusion. We are pained and worried. We will request them again that the government had given you a written assurance and whenever you want a discussion on the issue the government is always ready,” the two ministers said
