Agri bills row: Farmers call rail roko; politics escalates l Latest updates

Politics continues to escalate over the farm related bills passed by the Lok Sabha.

Farmers groups have planned to intensify their agitation against the bills and have called for a ‘rail roko’ protest from September 24th onwards.

Farmers’ group leaders called on people to unite against the bill which they say would give corporate the upper hand and deal a severe blow to the farmers.

Leader of Kishan Majdoor Sangharsh Committee also lashed out at Harsimrat Kaur, who resigned from the Union Cabinet in protest against the bills on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the Congress and the BJP are also involved in a heated war of words over the bill.

While the Congress party has alleged that this bill shows the hatred of the BJP towards farmers of the nation, the BJP has accused it of trying to mislead farmers on the issue.

BJP has argued that the farmers will eventually realize that the bill benefits them to a very large extent.
