Farmers' Protest Highlights | Bar Council condemns three farm laws, will write to PM Modi to repeal them: Senior Advocate HS Phoolka

Farmers' Protest News LIVE Updates: Farmers' protest against the Centre's new farm legislation has entered 7th day. Government will hold another round of meeting with leaders of farmer unions on December 3.

Farmers' Protest LIVE Updates: The Delhi Chalo farmers' protest at the Delhi border points has entered the seventh day and is set to continue as the talks between three Union Ministers --  Piyush Goyal, Narendra Singh Tomar, Som Prakash -- and farmer groups ended in a stalemate on December 1. Leaders of farmer unions rejected the Centre's offer of setting up a new committee to look into issues

raised by agitating farmers. Another round of meeting will be held on December 3. Farmers have said that the protest will continue until their demands are met and the contentious laws are scrapped. They fear that the new farm laws will dismantle the minimum support price system and corporatise farming.

Meanwhile, Senior advocate HS Phoolka stated that Bar Council condemns the three farm laws and will write to the Prime Minister to repeal them as it is against the farmers. Adding more, he said, "It is also against the lawyers as it bars the Civil Court’s jurisdiction and won’t let farmers get justice."

Stay tuned to this LIVE blog for all the latest updates on farmers' protest:

    Farmers' protest LIVE Updates | RLD leader meets protesting farmers in Delhi, questions Centre's push for new farm laws

    The farmers protesting against the Centre's new farm laws will not relent on their demands, Rashtriya Lok Dal vice president Jayant Chaudhary said on Wednesday and assured his party's support to the ongoing stir. He met with some of the agitating farmers at Singhu border in Delhi, but dubbed his meeting as non-political.

    Everyone is concerned about the situation. It has been a couple of days since the stir began at the Delhi border, but the agitation in Punjab has been on since more than one-and-a-half months, Chaudhary said. 
    I went to meet the farmers because I felt it was my duty to do so. I went there to distribute langar 'prasad' to the farmers with 'seva bhaav' (feeling of service). It was not a political visit, he added.
