The seventh round of talks between farmer unions and the Centre January 4 was inconclusive. The two sides could not reach an agreement on whether the three agricultural laws passed by Parliament in September last year could be repealed and also whether a legal provision could be provided guaranteeing minimum support price. These had been the key demands of the farmers. Photo: Vikas Choudhary / CSE
The next date for talks between farmer unions and the government is January 8, 2021. Some 60 farmers have died till now due to camping out in the open in the freezing, wet weather. Photo: Vikas Choudhary/ CSE
