He said that in a democracy the government honours the Supreme Court’s directions. Shri Tomar once again reiterated that point wise discussion can take place on contentious issues. Each State in the country has different circumstances and a lot of farmers across the country support these new farm laws. He also said that procurement of farmers produce at Minimum Support Price (MSP) has increased during this season and procurement centres have also increased.
Union Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Shri Piyush Goyal explained the provisions of the Essential Commodities Amendment Act, 2020 during the discussion. He also elaborated how this Act will benefit the Agriculture sector and farmers.

It was mutually decided that the next round of talks will be held on 19th January 2021 as dialogue is the only way forward.
