Punjab CM To Meet Amit Shah Ahead Of Crucial Talks With Farmers

New Delhi: Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh has left for Delhi to meet Union home minister Amit Shah ahead of the crucial talks between the Centre and farmer organisations’ representatives on the three contentious farm laws.

He is scheduled to meet Shah at 9.30am to try and work out an amicable solution to the deadlock, according to sources.

Amarinder is accompanied by his chief principal secretary Suresh Kumar and some other officials.

Thursday’s meeting between farmers and the Centre is crucial as this is the fourth such meeting — all previous meetings failing to end the deadlock — over the grievances against the three farm bills passed recently by Parliament.

As matter has been shifted to today’s meeting, farm leaders appeared to have hardened their stand, demanding the Centre call a special session of Parliament to repeal the newly enacted farms laws, which they say will adversely impact the minimum support price system (MSP) that offers cultivators assured prices from the government, and eventually help corporate entities.
