Three days ahead of the scheduled meet, Mr Tomar on Monday invited the farmers for talks today at 3 pm, as he cited coronavirus and cold. "On November 13, we had decided we will meet on December 3, but farmers are in a mood to protest. We request you to leave the protest and find a solution through talks," he said. Mr Tomar has met Amit Shah thrice in two days, sources say, after farmers threatened to block Delhi.
