Farmers’ Nationwide Hunger Strike Today

New Delhi:14 Dec 2020 As protests escalate against the government’s new agricultural laws, several leaders of farmers’ bodies – backing thousands of protesters camping near Delhi borders since late November – are holding a nine-hour long hunger strike today. They’ve planned demonstrations across the country. This is the second nationwide protest in less than a week after highways were blocked last Tuesday as a part of countrywide shutdown call backed by opposition parties and trade unions. Despite several round of talks with the government, farmers have said the agitation will continue till the new laws are scrapped.
