NEW DELHI – Hundreds of the Delhi Congress activists on Tuesday staged a protest near the BJP headquarters here in support of the agitating farmers.
The activists shouted slogans against the Modi government as they were stopped by the Delhi Police meters away from the BJP headquarters at the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg.
The police had put barricades to stop the activists from reaching the BJP office.
Addressing the party activists, Delhi Congress chief Chaudhary Anil Kumar said, “By delaying the repealing of the black farm laws the government is hampering the interests of the farmers. The government should repeal the three laws immediately.
“Congress is in favour of repealing these laws,” Kumar said, adding that the government did not discuss the laws with the stakeholders.
The farmers from Haryana, Punjab and Western Uttar Pradesh have been sitting on protest at the Delhi-Haryana’s Singhu and Tikri border and Delhi-Uttar Pradesh Ghazipur border for the last 20 days.
Several rounds of talks between the farmers and the government have failed to yield any result. -IANS
