A delegation of state BJP leaders, led by former minister and party's farmers' coordination committee chairman Surjit Kumar Jyani, met Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar in Delhi today.

The delegation members included former BJP national secretary Harjit Singh Grewal and Punjab Kisan Morcha president Vikramjit Singh Cheema. Jyani told The Tribune over the phone that the delegation requested the leaders to hold talks with the farmers. He said they also acquainted Rajnath and Tomar about the situation in the state in the wake of continuous protests against the farm laws. They urged the leaders to begin talks with the state farmers to reach at an amicable solution.

Jyani claimed that both leaders had assured that they were ready to meet the farmers. Jyani claimed Rajnath spoke to Balbir Singh Rajewal, president, Bhartiya Kisan Union (Rajewal), over the phone and invited him for the talks.

Rajewal, however, denied having any conversation with the Defence Minister. He, however, said Jyani spoke to him in this regard. Rajewal said they were ready to attend the meeting with Central ministers, but not with the officials. — OC
