“The farm reforms brought about in the past six months have now started yielding benefit for the farmers,” he said.

The statement comes at a time when farmer protests over the farm reform bills in the National Capital Region (NCR) entered the 23rd day with the talks between the agitating farmers and the government not making any headway.

The Prime Minister has been meeting farmers in several parts of the country, as farmers from Haryana, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh are at the borders of the national capital for over three weeks now.
