Farmers have been on an unsettling protest at the Delhi borders requesting the annulment of the three farm laws since November last year. Multiple talks and meeting took place between farmers and leaders including PM Narendra Modi over the dreadful laws which doesn’t not give assurance of the minimum support price (MSP), leaving them helpless before large and powerful business organisation.

Farmers are organising special event to mark nine months of their protest against the three contentious farm laws starting from August 26 at the Singhu border.

A two-day long protest that invites 1,500 delegates across associations of farmers, ladies, youth, and workers, is focused on strengthening the protest against the laws. Three meetings will be coordinated on Thursday, including the inaugural meeting, and one each on agricultural workers, rural, poor and down trodden individuals.

“It is miserable that it’s been nine months however the public authority is as yet not prepared to talk. Yet, we ought not feel demotivated. During this show we will ponder what we have lost and what we have acquired throughout the most recent nine months,” said Bharatiya Kisan Union [BKU] pioneer Rakesh Tikait while addressing the protesters at the Singhu line.

Among the points that the protest is relied upon are abrogation of the three farm bill that allegedly favours corporate houses, legitimate assurance for MSP, nullification of Electricity Bill, 2021, and no charges for farmers under the Commission of Air Quality Management in NCR and Adjoining Areas Bill 2021.

Opposition have taken the farmers’ protest with all the zeal and targeted the government over the issue. The monsoon session was full of chaos over the opposition’s demand to have a debate on the law but that never happened.

More than 200 deaths have been confirmed by Punjab related to the farmers’ protest in 9 months of protest, according to the Indian Express reports. However, centre government had said in the monsoon session that it has no records of death that took place within 8-month-long protest.
