Farmer leaders Begin Day-Long Hunger Strike As Protests Escalate

New Delhi: 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.

As per reports, around thirty-three farmer leaders are holding a hunger strike at Singhu on Haryana-Delhi border, one of the key protest sites. The hunger strike is a part of the farmers’ plan to intensify their agitation.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday that he will fast along with farmers. “Fasting is pure. Wherever you are, please fast for our farmer brothers. Pray to god that they succeed as they struggle. In the end, they’ll win for sure,” Mr Kejriwal tweeted this morning in Hindi.

The farmers’ call to intensify the agitation came on Saturday, hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured: “Reforms will help draw investment in agriculture and benefit farmers.”
