Farmers have been protesting against the Centre’s farm laws, fearing that the new laws would lead to the dismantling of the minimum support price system, leaving them at the “mercy” of big corporates. They have been demanding the repeal of these laws.
Soon after allowing them entry, Delhi Police Commissioner urged the farmers to maintain order and demonstrate peacefully.
Reacting to the situation, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said that he welcomed the Centre’s decision to allow farmers to enter Delhi to exercise their democratic right to protest. “They should also now initiate immediate talks to address farmers’ concerns on the farm laws and resolve the simmering issue.”
