New Delhi, December 26

Farmer unions have agreed for a meeting with the government on December 29 at 11 am. However, the meeting will be at the agenda decided by the unions.

The four demands include repeal of the three laws and a separate law on MSP. The other two demands are related to the electricity law and the one related to burning of paddy stubble.

This will be the sixth meeting with farmer unions with ministers. The earlier meetings had failed to break the deadlock.

Though farmer unions have again set conditions, including repeal of three laws, for the talks, government sources say there is no going back on three Acts, something that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also made it clear in his last address to farmers yesterday.

Making clear stance on “Left leaning” leaders in the agitation, they are also accusing them of “misleading farmers and creating hurdles between the government and genuine farmers and their leaders”.

Meanwhile, farmer unions said on December 30 all tractors will march from one border to the other.

They added that if the issue is not resolved till January 1, they will make a “big announcement”.
