Their protest is for their most genuine concerns, which the government is ignoring. “The farmers are fighting for their legitimate rights, and their protests are getting support from every section of society .The farm laws that are not in the interest of the farming community must be taken back but Prime Minister Modi has time to meet industrialists, but not farmers.
