Farmer leader Singhu has reached Vigyan Bhawan from Haryana-Delhi border for the eighth round of talks with the central government.
The two sides proposed the eighth round of talks at Vigyan Bhawan on Friday afternoon at 2:00 pm, which was decided during the 7th talks held on 4 December. Both sides are trying to end this 8th meeting on the deadlock that has been going on for a month. Let me tell you that today is the 44th day of the farmer movement.
Earlier, the 7th meeting held on January 4 was inconclusive. No solution has been found in the talks held so far. Today is the 8th round of meetings with the farmers ‘government on the 44th day of the farmers’ movement.
We will discuss and maybe we will be able to reach a solution: Agriculture Minister
Before the 8th round between the farmer and the central government, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said, I sincerely hope that the people of the farmers union will discuss in a positive environment and we will be able to reach a solution.
The government is solely responsible for ending the agitation: Tikait
Prior to the talks, prominent farmer leader Rakesh Tikait has said that now only the government has the responsibility to end this movement. Talking to our affiliate channel Zee News, Tikait said that we do not have any formula anymore. The government has a formula, the government has very knowledgeable people, they will bring it. Tikait said that the farmer leaders have told that without the withdrawal of the law, the law on MSP and the report of the Swaminathan Commission will not be made. He said that the farmers who have been Shahid during this movement will keep silence for them. The farmer has told the government that we do not want this law.
Going to negotiate with the hope of a solution
While leaving for Vigyan Bhavan before the 8th round of talks with the Center on all three agricultural laws, Rakesh Tikait, spokesperson of the Bharatiya Kisan Union said, “We are going for talks with the hope that there will be a solution today.”
Farmers union leaders will think that if there is a solution, then there must be a solution: Minister
Union Kailash Chaudhary said that earlier the topic of the farmers union in the talks was that we want to improve it. The government is ready for reform. I am sure they will understand this in today’s talks. The leaders of the farmers union will think that if there is a solution, there will be a solution.

This is just a rehearsal before the proposed parade of tractors: Farmers’ Organization
The farmers had taken out a tractor rally on Thursday against three new agricultural laws of the Center at the protest site – Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur border and Rewasan in Haryana. Farming organizations protesting said that this is just a rehearsal before the proposed parade of tractors coming from different parts of Haryana, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh to the national capital on 26 January. The farmers have been standing since November on the borders with Delhi.
This is the issue between government and farmer organizations
Last year, the Central Government introduced all the three laws implemented in September 2020 as a major reform in the agriculture sector. The government says that with the introduction of these laws, the role of middleman will end and farmers will be able to sell their produce anywhere in the country. On the other hand, the protesting peasant organizations say that these laws will eliminate the security shield of the MSP and the mandis will also be dismantled and farming will go into the hands of big corporate groups.
