Farmers Bill Protest HIGHLIGHTS | Police detain Youth Congress members during protest march towards Parliament

Farmers Bill Protest LIVE Updates: Centre's three new farm bills are facing staunch opposition from farmers' bodies, opposition parties as well as from within the ruling NDA coalition.

Farmers Bill Protest LIVE Updates: Farmers are protesting against the three new farm bills brought by the Centre, which aimed at allowing farmers to sell their produce directly to food processors and retailers. The Centre introduced the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill, 2020 in the Monsoon Session of the Parliament. All three bills got passed in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.

The bills are facing staunch opposition from farmers' bodies, especially in Punjab and Haryana, opposition parties as well as from within the ruling NDA coalition. The Congress has announced a massive people's movement which would include protest marches, agitations and collecting two crore farmers' signatures for a memorandum against the legislations to be submitted to President Ram Nath Kovind while the ruling BJP is planning a mega exercise to reach out to farmers to counter the Opposition's narrative on farm bills.
