Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala said on Saturday that the deadlock between the Central government and protesting farmers over new agricultural laws are likely to end in the next 24 to 48 hours, asserting that a breakthrough is expected in the final round of talks between the Centre and the unions.
Chautala’s statement comes even as farmers have vowed to intensify their ongoing agitation, seeking revocation of the contentious laws.
The Haryana Deputy CM had earlier said he will resign if the MSP system is threatened amid mounting pressure from the opposition and some farmers to pull out from the BJP-led government in the state.
Asked whether the alliance government in Haryana was stable, Chautala said on Saturday, “Yes. ..Till we ensure MSP, we will be stable. I am hopeful there will be another round of talks and some conclusive statement can come out of that,” the Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) leader said.
