The Congress raised slogans, “Modi government anti-farmer”, “Stop harassing farmers” and displayed placards. In Parliament, both the Houses saw repeated adjournments with Opposition parties, including Congress, protesting against the farm laws and other issues.

Meanwhile, at the historic Jantar Mantar, over 200 protestors under the aegis of Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) and Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee (KMSC) gathered to protest against these laws.

The three farm laws were bulldozed through Parliament amid strong protest from the Opposition in the previous winter session.

The laws encourage private players to buy directly from the farmers, a provision which farmers feel will lead to the closure of the Mandi system and do away with the Minimum Support Price.

The government has withheld the laws for 18 months after a strong protest from the farm unions.
