While talking to media persons in Madhya Pradesh's Gwalior, Narendra Singh Tomar said that if the farmers' organizations were ready to discuss options other than the repeal of new agriculture bills, then the government was ready to talk with farmers.
Tomar also said that the price of mustard oil has increased as the government has stopped adulteration in the oil to ensure purity, this decision will benefit farmers.
"The government is keeping an eye on the prices of edible oils," he said. Even as he said that there was no instability (in Madhya Pradesh's BJP govt). MP govt is handling the COVID-19 situation properly. There is a BJP govt in MP and it will decide who will be its CM, he said, adding that Congress has no right to talk about the BJP's CM.
