Mr Munda along with Union ministers Piyush Goyal and Nityanand Rai represented the Centre at the around five-hour-long meeting over the farmer unions’ various demands, including a law guaranteeing a minimum support price (MSP) for crops.

Samyukta Kisan Morcha (Non-Political) and the Kisan Mazdoor Morcha have given a “Delhi Chalo” call to press the Centre to accept their demands.
