Farmers from across India continue to stage a protest at the Delhi borders, demanding a roll back of the three agri laws. The government had offered to listen to the farmers and invited leaders to hold talks with agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar.

In the meeting, government offered to create a committee with representatives from farmer unions, government and agri experts to discuss new laws. Farmers have rejected the proposal to form a committee but are ready for day-to-day talks with the government.
