Kisan groups send message to Centre; say no to existing amendments & demand new 'concrete proposal'

The latest update on the agitation by farmers is that the farmers have agreed to have a dialogue with the Central government. The amendments that the centre was ready to make in its previous proposal has been rejected by the farmers.

In hope for a breakthrough, the Kisan Union leaders have also insisted that they are ready for talks. Swaraj Abhiyan's Yogendra Yadav in a press briefing said, 'The government is trying to dilute the issue by holding casual talks with farmer leaders. We have repeatedly told them that we won't accept the amendments. The government should know that their proposal doesn't mention the relevant points. We want to make it clear that we don't want any amendments, we want them to be repealed.'

Even though the farmers are ready to have a meeting with the Centre, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is going to lead a protest to Rashtrapati Bhavan today.
