When asked about the possibility of resuming talks between the Center and representatives of farmers’ unions, a source said that the government had already given a better offer to the farmer leaders, but they did not accept it. He lost a good chance. They have now lost moral authority. Now we have to see whether they accept that offer or they come up with some other proposal.
