Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has welcomed the Centre's decision to take forward the talks with farm unions, in the wake of the farmers' decision to lift their agitation to allow passenger and goods trains in the state.

The Chief Minister, who had spoken to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah last week to urge them to resolve the issue at the earliest, said he was happy to note that the Central Government had reportedly invited farmer organisations for talks on December 3. Referring to media reports to this effect, he hoped that the forthcoming talks would pave the way for early redressal of the concerns of farmers on the agricultural laws. It was vital for Punjab's interests that the matter be resolved as soon as possible, the CM said, expressing satisfaction at the fact that both the unions and the Government of India had shown flexibility and intent to come to an amicable solution on the issue.
