December 11 Recently, a peasant uprising broke out in Delhi, India. Protesters gathered near an important bus stop in the city to protest. Two senior officers who led the police force at the scene tested positive for the novel coronavirus. According to Delhi police, the two officers are currently quarantined at home.
According to a report by New Delhi TV on the 11th, the incident occurred on the 16th day of protesting against the agricultural law by Indian farmers. Farmers leaders said on December 10 that they would pressure the government to repeal three agricultural laws by blocking the railway.
Previously, they rejected the central government’s proposal for changes. The Indian Central Committee held six rounds of talks with peasant leaders on the law, but no progress was made.
The three agricultural regulations adopted by the Indian government are reported to abolish intermediaries and increase farmers’ income by allowing farmers to sell agricultural products throughout the country.
But farmers and opposition parties believe that these laws will deprive farmers of the minimum price guarantee of their products and leave farmers at the mercy of enterprises.
