Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired an all-party meeting on Saturday to put forth the government’s legislative agenda for the Budget Session of Parliament. Usually, such all-party meetings are held ahead of parliamentary sessions to ensure the smooth functioning of both the Houses.
PM Modi also said a resolution to the issues should be found through dialogue while asserting that everyone has to think about the nation.
According to the sources, PM Narendra Modi asserted that the government’s proposal to the farm laws still stands. “The government’s proposal still stands. Please convey this to your supporters. The resolution should be found through dialogue. We all have to think about the nation,” he said.
PM Narendra Modi said, “I want to reiterate what Narendra Singh Tomar told farmers. He said, we’ve not reached to consensus but we’re giving you [farmers] the offer and you may go and deliberate. He [Narendra Singh Tomar] told farmers that he was just a phone call away.”
PM Narendra Modi also asserted that his government has been continuously trying to resolve the issues raised by protesting farmers through talks.
In the all-party meeting, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, TMC’s Sudip Bandyopadhyay, Shiv Sena MP Vinayak Raut, and SAD’s Balwinder Singh Bhunder spoke at length on farmers agitation.
