New Delhi: Union Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Sunday met Defence Minister Rajnath Singh ahead of today's talk with farmers.

Meanwhile, the protesting farmers gave an ultimatum that they would intensify the stir in the event of the talks failing again.

Media reports seemingly show that the government is trying to strike a middle path for the resolution of the issue.

Pressuring the Centre further, the farmers on Saturday declared to take out a parade in Delhi on Republic Day on January 26.

Just as the official parade ends the farmers will march into the city on their tractors and trolleys, they declared.

The farmers leaders gave clear message through media to the government to repeal the three central farm acts or use force to evict them.

Their declaration came as their ongoing protest entered its 38th day on Saturday after six round of government-farmer talks.

Of them the last one -- on December 30 -- saw some agreement on the farmers' demands on removal of penal provisions for stubble burning and the proposed Electricity Amendment Act.

The talks on Monday will deal with the demand to rollback the three acts and give a legal status to the MSP.
