New Delhi: With ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ placards, furious farmers put up a silent protest at the meeting with the government over the new farm laws.

In the four-hour meeting on Saturday, farmer representatives went on a brief silent protest, refusing to talk and only using the ‘Yes/No’ posters to interact with the centre’s panel which included Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar.

There has been rising displeasure over the talks among farmers who insist the new laws be repealed even as the centre said a new proposal would be placed before them after discussions within the government.

The farmers agreed for a sixth round of talks scheduled for Wednesday. Around 40 representatives of various farmer organisations attended Saturday’s talks at Vigyan Bhawan.

They had even brought their own food, the second time this week, and refused to eat lunch offered by the government. And carried their own tea and water from their langar at Singhu border, one of the protest sites.

However, agitating farmers said that on Tuesday they will block all roads to Delhi and highways across the country to increase pressure on the government.
