News18 has learned through sources that farmers leaders have realised that the January 26 incident was "not in good taste" and they have said that they are committed towards the country.

Amid controversy over international criticism on the ongoing farmers protests in India, government sources have said that there was a possibility for a "favourable environment" to find resolve even as the impasse continued for months.

Sources told News18 that there was a possibility of a favourable environment as talks through backdoor channels between farmers unions and the Government of India were working.

The stalemate between the government and the farmers have continued as several rounds of talks between the government and the farmers have failed to find a solution.

While the government has said that it was ready to talk to the farmers, the farmers unions have maintained that they want the laws repealed.

Meanwhile, amid international traction on the issue on social media, with tweets from singer Rihanna and climate activist Greta Thunberg, the government has said it was an internal issue and the celebrities commenting on them were irresponsible.
