    Farmers’ Protest LIVE Updates: Govt writes to farmer unions, invites them for talks as they threaten hunger strike

    Farmers’ Protest LIVE Updates: The government on Sunday wrote to the farmers who have been protesting on Delhi borders since November 26, inviting them for the next round of talks to end the deadlock over the farm laws. The government has also asked the farmers to choose a convenient date for the talks. In a letter to the union leaders, Agriculture Ministry Joint Secretary Vivek Aggarwal said, “I request those previously invited protesting union leaders to provide details of their remaining concerns and doubts and suggest a date as per convenience for next round of talks.” Previous rounds of talks have failed to end the deadlock between the government and the farmers. While the farmers are adamant about their demand to repeal the laws, the government says that’s not possible. As the farmers’ protest enters Day 26, get all the LIVE updates from the protest sites here at India Today.
