Farmers’ Movement

Farmers’ ongoing agitation against highly controversial farm laws of the government has spread now in larger parts of the country. This movement is a symbol of India’s vibrant democracy. More and more farmers are joining the movement and people from all walks of life- labourers and workers, students and intelligentsia are assembling around them. The movement is now reaching to grassroot levels in the village of many states.
