New Delhi: Leaders of 30 farmer unions will meet on Tuesday to decide on the Centre's invitation for talks.
Outfits including the Bharatiya Kisan Union will participate in the meeting at the Singhu border.
Thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh have been protesting at the Delhi border since November 26.
Earlier Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar invited the farm leaders to discuss the issues here at Vigyan Bhavan in the afternoon.
It is learnt that the farm leaders will first discuss the invite among themselves.
Currently, these farmers have been protesting at Delhi's Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur borders on Delhi-Chandigarh, Delhi-Haryana and Delhi-Uttar Pradesh routes, demanding repeal of three farm laws enacted in September by Parliament.
The Agriculture Minister on Monday evening invited farmer leaders to talk on their issues on Tuesday.
However, the meeting was earlier decided to be held on December 3.
The move comes after a meeting held by Home Minister Amit Shah at his residence earlier on Monday in which the Agriculture Minister and several other senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders were present.
