Farmers’ Protest LIVE News Updates: Another round of talks between the protesting farmers and the central government will be held on Saturday as the marathon talk on Thursday failed to end the standoff between the two over the new farm laws as the protestors refused to budge on their demands. The government side, led by Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, assured the group of nearly 40 farmer leaders that all their valid concerns would be discussed and considered with an open mind, but the other side stuck to their demand of repealing the three “hastily-passed” farm laws, saying there were several loopholes and deficiencies. The agriculture minister says the government will consider all their demands on Friday. Meanwhile, thousands of farmers from Haryana, Punjab, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and other states have continued to camp on the outskirts of Delhi in protest, leading to traffic snarls at the border areas. In protest against the farm laws, Akali Dal stalwart and former Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal returned his Padma Vibhushan award and dissident Akali Dal leader Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, too, said he will return his Padma Bhushan.
