 Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) constituted a five-member committee for dialogue with the government on the protesting farmers' remaining demands on Wednesday. The committee memebers said that the farm unions are hopeful and are progressing towards a resolution.

According to the farmer leader Yudhvir Singh, they have discussed a fresh proposal received from the Centre.

The SKM is scheduled to hold a crucial meeting at the Singhu border protest site on Wednesday to take a decision on whether protesting farmers should end their agitation following the government's fresh proposal.
