While addressing a rally in Delhi, on Friday, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh appealed the protesting farmers to ‘let the farm laws be implemented for an year or two,’ adding that the government would be ready to amend the new laws if they were not found beneficial to the farmers.
“Let farm laws be implemented for an year or two. Lets try this as an experiment, and if found not beneficial for farmers, the government will be ready for all possible amendments,” Singh said.
He further asked the farmers to resolve their issues through dialogue and said that the government had a lot of respect for them.
“All problems can be resolved through dialogue. The Prime Minister wants talks with farmers to continue. I appeal to all protesting farmers to come forward for discussion on farm laws. Those who are sitting on dharna (protest) are farmers and are born to farmers’ families. We have a lot of respect for them,” he said.
