New Delhi : Talks between Home Minister Amit Shah and a group of farmers' representatives went inconclusive on Tuesday evening with union leaders staying firm on their demands to withdraw the three new amendments made in the farm law.

After meeting Amit Shah, Hannan Mollah, General Secretary of All India Kisan Sabha claimed that the government is not ready to take back the new farm bill. He also confirmed that there will be no talks between farmers and Centre on Wednesday.

Hannan said, "The minister (Amit Shah) has said that a proposal will be given to the farmer leaders today. Farmer leaders will hold a meeting over the government’s proposal."

He further informed that the farmer leaders will hold a meeting at Singhu border (Delhi-Haryana border) at 12 pm. On Tuesday, Home Minister Amit Shah met 13 farmer leaders who are protesting against the government’s contentious farm bills.

The meeting was held at the National Agricultural Science Complex, Pusa on the day when Bharat Bandh was observed.

The government has maintained that it is committed to the welfare of farmers and have presented these laws as major reforms for their benefits.
