Crowd gathering doesn't lead to revocation of laws, says Minister

Gwalior: Union minister Narendra Singh Tomar reiterated that the Centre was ready to talk to the farmers protesting against the new agriculture laws, and said that mere gathering of crowd does not lead to revocation of legislations.

He urged the agitating farm unions to tell the government which provisions in these new laws they find anti-farmers.

"Considering the issue with sensitivity, the government has held 12 rounds of talks with the farmer unions. But decisions on the basis of talks could be taken when objections (over the new farm laws) are pointed out," the minister told.

The unions should tell as to what is anti-farmers in the new laws, he added.

"You flatly say revoke the laws...It doesn't happen that crowd gathers and the laws get revoked," he said.
