Farmers' Protest highlights: Farmers' protest against the Centre's new farm laws has entered 8th day. The government held second another round of talks with leaders of farmer unions today.

Farmers' Protest highlights :  The Delhi Chalo farmers' protest at border points in Delhi has entered the 8th day on December 3. The government held another round of talks with leaders of farmer unions which ended without any breakthrough. Another round of meeting is scheduled on December 5.  The previous meeting between three Union Ministers --  Piyush Goyal, Narendra Singh Tomar, Som Prakash
-- and farmer groups ended in a stalemate on December 1. Leaders of farmer unions rejected the Centre's offer of setting up a new committee to look into issues raised by agitating farmers. Farmers have 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 system and corporatise farming. Stay tuned to this LIVE blog for all the latest updates on farmers' protest:
