The minister made us wait for three & a half hours. This is an insult to farmers. When he came, he asked us to consider the govt's proposal & said that he is ending the process of meetings... The agitation will continue peacefully, says SS Pandher, Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee.
The farmers began protesting against the three farm acts which were passed by the Parliament of India in September 2020. Farmer unions and their representatives have demanded that the laws be repealed and will not accept anything short of it.
