Ready to discuss if point-wise objections are raised: Center
The country has seen that these agricultural laws are beneficial to the farmers. We have discussed about these laws. If they (agitating farmers) put their objections point-wise with the laws, then we can have a discussion. – Narendra Singh Tomar, Union Agriculture Minister
The government is more strict. People should not give such power to anyone. There is a proverb in the village – The one who is a jhota is not a buffalo… When more strength comes, the one who eats food should be destroyed first. So whoever voted for the government, it is the first one who is demolishing it.- Rakesh Tikait, farmer leader
