The meeting between the two sides on Saturday lasted for more than four hours

The Indian leaders of farmers’ unions and the Centre will hold another round of talks on December 9 to resolve the impasse over the agricultural laws, ANI reported as the fifth meeting between the two sides on Saturday lasted for more than four hours.

The previous discussion between the farmers and the Centre on Tuesday and on Thursday had also ended in a stalemate.

The farmers’ representatives said that the Centre will send a proposal to them on the day of the next meeting. 

“We will discuss it amongst ourselves after which a meeting with them will be held that day,” they told ANI.

During Saturday’s meeting, the farmers warned that they have enough supplies to continue their agitation till there is a breakthrough. 

The protesting farmers, however, said that their agitation would not turn violent. Indian Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, on the other hand, appealed to the farmers’ representatives to send elderly people and children at protest sites home. 

The representatives of farmers’ unions went on a silent protest during the meeting and demanded that the Centre just say “yes or no” to their demands, PTI reported. 

Tens of thousands of farmers have camped out at the entrance to Delhi for the tenth consecutive day to reverse the agricultural legislations.
