Agriculture minister Narendra Tomar, railways, food and consumer affairs minister Piyush Goyal and minister of state for commerce Som Prakash met 40 farm organisations for the fourth round of talks at Delhi's Vigyan Bhawan on December 3. On December 1, talks between both the sides ended in a stalemate after farmers' groups rejected the government's suggestion of a new committee to look into issues raised by farmers protesting against the new laws. Protest against farm laws continued for the eight straight day. Protesting farmers' main demand is scrapping of 3 recent Agri-reform laws. Farmers also want legal guarantee of minimum support price for crops. Watch the full video for more.
