Farmers' Protest: Shiromani Akali Dal on Monday staged a protest against Centre's farm laws outside Parliament, as Monsoon Session 2021 started.
Shiromani Akali Dal President Sukhbir Singh Badal said that farmers want black laws to be repealed. "We issued an adjournment notice. We want opposition parties to stand against the Modi govt," he said.
Meanwhile, the former Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal asked "Why is the govt not listening to farmers?" "Today, whoever supports the farmers will have to force the Centre during the session for farmers' rights," she wrote.
"Over 500 farmers have died by suicide. We will ask for this law to be repealed," Harsimrat Kaur Badal said.
Likewise, Sukhbir Singh Badal took to Twitter and wrote: "Farmers are awaiting justice and facing hardships for more than seven months."
"Central govt is not able to see that the three black laws are going to destroy farmers. I appeal to all the political parties to come together and pressurize GOI to repeal Farm Laws," he added.
Farmers have been protesting against the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and facilitation) Act, Farmers [Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and 2 Farm Services Act, and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act.
