Chandigarh, Mar 9 (PTI) A marathon meeting between Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and an outfit representing sarpanches protesting the state's e-tendering policy was held on Thursday late evening.
After the talks, Khattar said consensus was reached on most issues, but president of the Haryana Sarpanches Association Ranbir Singh Samain told reporters late in the night, "So far, there is no consensus on any issue. We have given the government time till Friday 12 noon." The chief minister said the sarpanches raised 15-16 demands and every single one was discussed at length.
"The meeting was held in a cordial atmosphere. On many things, consensus was reached. And on a couple of issues, we will have another short meeting on Friday after which a decision will be finalised," he said.
