January 6 According to a report by the Russian Satellite News Agency on the 5th, Rahul Gandhi, a senior official of India’s main opposition party, said that more than 60 farmers have died in protests since November 2020, which is caused by the government.
Gandhi reportedly tweeted: “The indifference and arrogance of Modi’s government have caused more than 60 farmers to lose their lives. The government was supposed to wipe them away, but it attacked them with tear gas.
One of India’s largest agricultural organizations, the Balatia Kisan Alliance, said on the 4th that 60 people have died in protests that have continued to date. According to the report, most farmers died because of complications caused by extreme weather at the protest site.
Since November 2020, more than 30 agricultural organizations in India have gathered on the border of the Indian capital New Delhi to protest against the Modi government’s amendment of agricultural-related laws.
At present, there are still a large number of protests against farmers camping outside New Delhi.
They say that if these laws cannot be repealed, they will drive tractors to march in Delhi on Republic Day on January 26.
