Khattar’s statement came after meeting with Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Saturday to discuss the current issue of farmers. “A solution to this problem (protest from farmers) should be found through discussion. I said this problem should be fixed soon. The center is ready to talk to the farmers about their problems related to the new farm laws, clause by clause, ”said the CM Haryana to the ANI news agency after the meeting.
While Khattar said there might be another round of talks between the center and the farmers’ unions, Tomar urged the protesting unions to clarify their “fears” about the three agricultural laws. He said this was necessary in order to focus the discussions on specific issues and that their complaints were “not clear enough” at the moment. The minister also asked farmers to set a date for the talks.
