Centre to meet Punjab farmer bodies on November 13 as anti-farm law protest intensifies

In the latest development over the protest against the farm laws, the Centre has extended a fresh invitation and will be meeting the Punjab farmer bodies on November 13. Secretary of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Sudhanshu Pandey has sent this invitation as the protests have been intensified on a larger scale. This is another attempt that is being made by the Union government to engage with the farmer bodies to bring an end to their anti-farm law protests. The protestors will continue to protest standing by their demand for cancellation of the three farm laws.

An invitation has also been sent to Defence Minister Rajnath Singh to attend the meeting on Friday.
