New Delhi: Terming Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement to withdraw the contentious farm laws as a beginning, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait reiterated that the protesting farmers will return to their homes only after the decision is duly passed by Parliament.

The BKU national spokesperson has insisted that the government should talk to farmers over the issue of minimum support price (MSP) of crops and other matters.

He said this on Twitter soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced repealing of the three farm laws, which were at the centre of the farmers' protest since November 26 last year.

"The protest will not be withdrawn immediately. We will wait for the day when the farm laws are repealed in Parliament. Along with MSP, the government should talk to farmers on other issues too," Tikait tweeted in Hindi.

Earlier, addressing the nation on the occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti, the PM said the three farm laws were for the benefit of farmers but "we couldn't convince a section of farmers despite best efforts".
