Govt is still open to hold discussions with farmers: Pralhad Joshi

Following All-party meet, Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said that the government is still open to hold talks with farmers. "In 11th Centre-farmer negotiation, we'd said that government is open for discussion. The Agriculture Minister had said that he's just a phone call away; whenever you give a call he's ready for discussion. It still stands good. Government is ready to hold discussions. This is what PM said (in all-party meet)," said Pralhad Joshi. He added, "A statue of Mahatma Gandhi was vandalised in the US (in California). This is a huge insult. The PM has strongly condemned it."
