The government will meet farmers' representatives today in the second round of talks as protests against the contentious new farm laws are intensifying by the day. Agitating farmers on Wednesday said today's talks will be the "last chance" to call an emergency session of parliament and recall the controversial legislations. The government, meanwhile, is weighing in on the possibility of giving a written assurance to farmers that the Minimum Support Price (MSP) system will continue. The farmers are protesting against three laws that they fear will take away the MSP or their guaranteed minimum earnings and leave them open to manipulation by corporates. The protest - the biggest by farmers in years - has entered the eighth day with farmers threatening to block other roads in Delhi and "take more steps" if the centre fails to meet their demands. Ahead of the crucial meet, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will meet Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, sources said.
