Union home minister Amit Shah, defence minister Rajnath Singh and agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar will shortly meet for the second time at BJP chief JP Nadda’s residence over farmers’ protest. Sources said that the defence minister is likely to lead discussion with crop growers. In a late night decision, the Centre invited agitating farmer unions for talks today, two days ahead of a scheduled meeting, as their stir against the new agri-marketing laws appeared to intensify. However, some groups are upset with the government’s decision. Punjab Kisan Sangarsh Committee’s joint secretary Sukhvinder S Sabhran said that there are more than 500 groups of farmers in the country, but the Centre has invited only 32 groups for talks. “We won’t be going for talks till all groups are called,” he added.
Meanwhile, Tikri and Singhu borders are still closed for vehicular movement. At Tikri, only Badusarai and Jhatikara Borders are open for two-wheeler traffic.
