New Delhi: BJP leaders held a high-level meeting at the party chief J.P. Nadda's residence to discuss ongoing farmers protest.

Home Minister Amit Shah joined the meeting soon after he returned from Hyderabad campaigning for the GMHC polls.

Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar was also present at the meeting.

The Home Minister had on Saturday appealed to all the farmers to move to the Burari ground, assuring them that the talks would be held the very next day after this is done.

However, leaders of the protesting farmers dismissed the government's appeal, saying they would not accept any pre-conditions for talks.

The gathering of farmers, mostly from Punjab, has hit transport links to the national capital, with the halt to movement of trucks affecting supplies. In light of this, the Centre is trying to end the protests as soon as possible, and is coordinating with the party organisation in this endeavour.

The farmers are demanding a rollback of the three recently passed agriculture laws, amongst others.
