(G.N.S) Dt. 30
In all-party meeting , Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that Centre government had offered to stay the implementation of the contentious laws for a period of 12-18 months in an attempt to break the deadlock with the protesting farmer unions. However, the farmer unions had rejected the offer and insisted on a complete repeal of the laws.
“I want to reiterate what Narendra Singh Tomar told farmers. He said we have not reached to consensus but we are giving you (farmers) the offer and you may go and deliberate. He told farmers that he was just a phone call away,” said PM Modi.
“Government’s proposal still stands. Please convey this to your supporters. The resolution should be found through dialogue. We all have to think about the nation,” he added.
The PM said that the government has been continuously trying to resolve issues of protesting farmers through talks.
