September 25, 2020


In India, farmers are holding protest demonstrations in various states against agriculture reforms terming them against their interests.

Several farming and trade unions and opposition parties have blocked motorways and railway tracks in different states.

Farmers' groups say three bills that contain reforms proposed by ruling BJP government are "anti-farmer" and make them vulnerable to market forces.

Meanwhile, in a tweet today, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi severely criticizing Modi regime said that new agriculture laws will enslave farmers.
