The tenth round of talks between the farm union leaders and the central government that was to be held today has now been postponed to tomorrow (20 January).

The two parties will meet tomorrow at 2 pm at the Vigyan Bhawan where the agriculturists are expected to stick to their demand of rolling back the three controversial farm bills.
However, the Supreme Court formulated committee to resolve the 55-days and continuing standoff between team Modi and the cultivators will sit for its first meeting at the Pusa campus in Delhi today. Though Bhupender Singh Maan, one of the four members nominated by the judges’ bench excused himself from the position, he will still join the other three panelists for the discussion today. On Saturday, a farm union requested for the apex court to remove the remaining members citing that the latter are already in favour of the centre-implemented agrarian laws.
Meanwhile, the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee, a 250 farm unions strong body issued a statement that if the federal administration is prolonging the ongoing debate and a solution in order to tire the protesting community, it is a wrong assumption on its part.
