Farmers protest: Farmers on Wednesday announced to suspend the 'Delhi Chalo' march for two days, and will decide their next course of action on Friday evening. The decision was announced by farmers' leader Sarwan Singh Pandher. Farmers have been protesting at the Punjab-Haryana borders for the past few days to press the Centre into accepting their demands on minimum support price (MSP) for crops and other issues. Amid the huge build-up of farmers at the borders of Haryana, Union Agriculture Minister Arjun Munda once again said the Centre was ready to discuss all issues. "After the fourth round, the government is ready to discuss all the issues like MSP demand, crop diversification, stubble issue, FIR in the fifth round," Arjun Munda wrote on X. "I again invite the farmer leaders for discussion. It is important for us to maintain peace," he added. In a setback, the farm union leaders on Monday rejected the Centre's proposal of buying pulses, maize and cotton at the MSP by the government agencies for five years, saying it was not in farmers' interest.
