New Delhi, December 2

The Centre and Punjab government is expected to work on a solution to the ongoing farmers’ agitation on Thursday, with state chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh all set to meet Home Minister Amit Shah in the National Capital.

Top Punjab government sources confirmed the scheduled meeting which will take place tomorrow morning ahead of the Centre’s meeting with the agitating farmer unions.

Amarinder Singh is expected to give his suggestions to ease the ongoing tension with a section of leaders in the Congress Party wary of the turn the agitation may take if prolonged too much.

Ludhiana MP Ravneet Bittu on Wednesday urged Shah to take control, noting that undesirable elements, including some Khalistan elements, had penetrated the protests and were hijacking the agitation.

Singh has earlier demanded restoration of the MSP system and legal guarantee to the same.

Sources said Singh may even attend the meeting with farmers to help reach a settlement to end the ongoing impasse.

Capt Amarinder will meet Shah at the latter’s residence.
