Details on Farmers protest
Farmers all around India have been protesting against the New Farmers Bills since last year because they believe for these laws to be oppressive and benefit primarily from private food buyers at the expense of producers. As a result, they have been out on roads protesting in large numbers, even in extreme weather conditions.
Celebrities voice their support.
With our country’s farmers taking on the largest protest in the history of humankind, Bollywood celebrities like Diljit Dosanjh, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker, Jasbir Jassi, Riteish Deshmukh, and many more have voiced their support.
After a week of violent clashes with the police, protesting farmers went on a one-day hunger strike. In response to that, the Indian government blocked all mobile internet/data services in multiple parts of New Delhi on Saturday in the name of ‘public safety.’
