Protest against India's new farm laws reignites in New Delhi as farmers stage sit-in near parliament

rt - 1 day ago

Protests against Indias troubled new agricultural laws have broken out in New Delhi, as farmers staged a sit-in near parliament on Thursday, to urge the government to repeal the legislation that they claim threatens their future.

New Delhi police escorted hundreds of farmers as they arrived in the capital, to a protest site in the center of the city on Thursday morning, marking the latest demonstration in the seven-month-long protests. Some protesters accused the police of tightening security at the demonstration site and of checking identity cards prior to their arrival.

“We are here to remind the government again that the anti-farmer laws need to be rolled back to protect Indian agriculture and millions of poor farmers from a complete takeover by large corporations,” the leader of the farmers' Bharatiya Kisan Union, Rakesh Tikait, declared ahead of the sit-in.

A number of Indian MPs were seen joining the demonstrations to show their solidarity with farmers, as the protesters sought to remind the government of what is sees as an urgent need to repeal the legislation and to bring back the protections that had previously been in place.

The government claims that the three laws, passed in September, will transform the nation’s agriculture and allow for private investment to come into the farming sector, such as private contracts between farmers and corporate investors. However, farmers have argued that the new laws open them up to exploitation within the free market and could potentially allow for companies to impose unfavorable contracts on them that will hurt their profits. 

Two opposition figures within the country’s parliament, Rahul Gandhi and Harsimrat Kaur Badal, reiterated the calls from protesters, urging the government to address the concerns of farmers and repeal the legislation. To show their support for the protests, Gandhi’s Congress party gathered at the parliament to display signs demanding the government ‘Save the country. Save the farmers.’
