The Centre Wednesday proposed to suspend the three contentious farm laws for up to 18 months and set up a joint committee to discuss them. Farmer leaders did not immediately accept the proposal, saying they would hold internal consultations first. The next round of meetings has been scheduled for January 22.
“During discussions, we said that govt is ready to put on hold the farm laws for one or one-and-a-half years. I’m happy that farmer unions have taken this very seriously and said they would consider it tomorrow and convey their decision on January 22,” Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said after the meeting.
The three laws have already been stayed by the Supreme Court till further orders and a committee of experts has been formed to resolve the deadlock.
