Several BJP leaders are also believed to be holding consultations and meetings to resolve the vexed problem.

Reaching out to farmers, Rajnath Singh said the government was always willing to listen to farmers and was open for dialogue.

Meanwhile, members of the All India Kisan Coordination Committee, who met Tomar, have extended support on the three laws.

They include organisations from states namely Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Bihar and Haryana, associated with All India Kisan Coordination Committee.

Several rounds of meetings held
