New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Kolkata’s Netaji Bhawan at Elgin Road to address Parakram Diwas celebrations to commemorate Subhas Chandra Bose’s 125th birth anniversary. Earlier last week, the Centre had decided to observe January 23 as Parakram Diwas every year.

On the other hand, the government’s negotiations with protesting farm unions hit a roadblock after the farmer leaders stuck to their demands for a complete repeal of three farm laws they find pro-corporate and a legal guarantee for MSP, even as the Centre asked them to reconsider its proposal for putting the Acts on hold for 12-18 months.
Unlike the last 10 rounds of talks, the 11th round could not even reach a decision on the next date for the meeting as the government also hardened its position saying it is ready to meet again once the unions agree to discuss the suspension proposal.
