A night at India's largest farmers' protest - BBC News



India’s largest farmers’ protest is still underway – tens of thousands of farmers have been on strike since 26 November demanding the repeal of recent laws that they say will shrink their incomes.

The BBC’s Rupa Jha spent a night at the protest on the borders of Delhi where farmers and their families have been living out in the open, braving both chilly temperatures and rain.

The government has said the laws will help farmers but the stalemate continues. Many rounds of talks between the two have failed.

Farmers, however, say they will not budge until the laws are revoked.

  1. The kick starter of current out of control pandemic. They got the ball rolling and everyone else just kept contributing to it to create the Tsunami of horror that India faces today. Every news outlet that encourages this political nonsense shoulders some responsibility of the current situation in India. This includes the BBC

  2. Sikhs are respected throughout the world yet in India they continue to suffer since 1947. History will not forgive Indian treachery against the great Sikhs. God is the witness.

  3. A small shopkeeper also sells his goods at fixed prices. But a single farmer is the only one whose crop price is determined by other people. Why is it like this? I am also a son of farmer and support farmer protest.
