Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said on Thursday that the ninth round of meetings between the protesting farmers’ organizations and the government would be held on Friday as per the schedule and the discussion on central optimism would be positive. “The government is ready to discuss with the peasant leaders with an open mind,” Tomar told reporters here.

After appointing a four-member committee to resolve the stalemate, the Supreme Court cleared the confusion in the ninth round of talks and removed one member from it, Tomar said, adding that a meeting between the government and farmers’ representatives would be held on January 15 during the day.

Farmers’ organizations have said they are willing to negotiate with the government. However, they do not want to appear before a committee appointed by the Supreme Court. Farmers’ organizations have expressed concern about the committee’s members, saying its members have supported three laws in the past. Earlier in the day, Bhupinder Singh Mann, president of the Kisan Union of India, said he had resigned from the four-member committee set up by the Supreme Court to resolve the stalemate between the agriculture sector and the Center over agricultural law.

Mann said he was grateful to the apex court for appointing him as a member of the committee, but that he would resign in any position he offered to not compromise in the interests of the farmers.

He said in a statement, “As a farmer and union leader myself, I am ready to step down because of the feelings and fears of the farmers’ association and the general public, so that there should be no compromise here.” “I am leaving the committee and I will always stand by my farmers and Punjab.” Thousands of farmers in Punjab and Haryana have been trying to repeal the new agriculture law as they have been performing at various borders in Delhi for weeks.
