Farmers' Protest LIVE Updates: Farmers' protest against the Centre's new farm laws has entered the 10th day. The government is holding another round of talks with leaders of farmer unions today.

Farmers' Protest LIVE Updates: The 'Delhi Chalo' farmers' protest at border points in New Delhi has entered the 10th day. The Centre and the leaders of protesting farmers' groups are holding another round of talks today. The second round of talks on December 3 had failed to provide a Cbreakthrough. The first meeting between three union ministers Piyush Goyal, Narendra Singh Tomar and Som Prakash
, and farmer groups had also ended in a stalemate on December 1. Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU)'s Lakhowal faction has called for a 'Bharat Bandh' on December 8 (Tuesday) to protest against the contentious laws. The nationwide strike is being backed by the Left parties. 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. They also said that the protest will continue until their demands are met and the contentious laws are scrapped. Farmers say that they fear that the new farm laws will dismantle the minimum support price (MSP) system and corporatise farming.
