Farmers’s protests in India accelerated, hunger strike begins across the country
NEW DELHI (Monitoring Desk) Farmers’s protests in India have reached their 19th day. Since Monday, a hunger strike has begun across the country. Negotiations with the Modi administration are deadlocked. Protests were also staged against Modi in the procession from Delhi to Amritsar. Farmers in India put Modi ahead, according to Indian TV. Farmers are on a hunger strike all over the world. Large roads have since been closed down in some states.
Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is also on the hunger strike to demonstrate unity with growers in the Farmers’s protests in India. The demonstrators said the demonstration would continue until the demands had been acknowledged. Barat Baratis, coming from Delhi to Amritsar, also carried posters and billboards in favour of farmers and against Modi. The groom said he was also a farmer’s family member and considers it his responsibility to support this demonstration. Thousands of people are demonstrating outside the Indian consulate in Birmingham.
Modi sang slogans against the government. The flags of the Khalistan waved, too. The Sikh group in Washington has also objected. Protesters marched in hundreds of cars outside the Indian embassy, shouting slogans against the Modi administration. The demonstrators requested that the international community apply pressure on India to protect human rights.
