New Delhi : Union Home Minister Amit Shah will be meeting Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Thursday ahead of scheduled talks with the protesting farmers in Delhi.

According to a news report, the meeting will be held at around 9:30 am. After that, Amit Shah will be holding talks with the farmers, fourth since the agitation began.

In the last meeting, held on Tuesday, the representatives of the farmers had turned down the Centre's proposal of a special committee to thrash out the differences and resolve concerns over the farm laws.

The things were already predicted to be tough amid the government’s strong stand over the new laws and farmers' firm decision to get it revoked.

Meanwhile, the farmers have announced that it is the last chance for the government on Thursday to decide on the new law. In place of a committee, they have demanded a special session of parliament to repeal what they have called "black laws" made to favour corporates.

"Tomorrow is the last chance for the government to take a decision to repeal the laws, otherwise this movement will become huge and the government will fall," Pratibha Shinde of the Lok Sangharsh Morcha, was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
