The farmers’ agitation along the borders of Delhi has entered its 12th day on Monday. They are demanding the withdrawal of the newly passed farm laws by the Central government.
Thousands of protesters have blocked the Capital’s borders at five points connecting the city to Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. They have also called for ‘Bharat Bandh’ on December 8 to raise their voice against the Centre’s three farm laws enacted in September during the Monsoon Session of Parliament.
The farmers are pushing for the scrapping of the laws — The Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
