Farmers' Protest Highlights: The Delhi Chalo farmers' protest at border points in New Delhi has entered the 14th day today.  The Centre and the leaders of protesting farmers' groups have held several rounds of talks, but no breakthrough has been achieved yet. The government cancelled its crucial sixth round of talks with 40 protesting farmers' unions that was scheduled today as farm leaders declined to participate, after a meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah failed to break the
deadlock. Leaders of farmer unions have so far rejected the Centre's offer of setting up a new committee to look into issues raised by agitating farmers. Farmers said that the protest will continue until their demands are met and the contentious laws are scrapped. They fear that the new farm laws will dismantle the minimum support price (MSP) system and corporatise farming. Stay tuned to this LIVE blog for all the latest updates.
