New Delhi: Ahead of the fifth round of talks to end the deadlock over the new farm laws, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday summoned Union Ministers – Rajnath Singh, Amit Shah, Narendra Singh Tomar and Piyush Goyal for deliberations before they meet agitating farmers.

The farmers are demanding the repeal of the three “hastily-passed” farm laws, saying that the legislations with several loopholes and deficiencies cannot be amended.

The government has offered eight amendments to the three reforms and a written assurance on the continuation of the minimum support price regime as a way to end their nine-day agitation at the borders of Delhi.

“I am hopeful that the farmers will think positively and end their agitation,” Tomar said before going to the PM and other ministers.

Farmers organisations said they were here for a fight to the finish and would not rest till the three farm laws were repealed.
