Meanwhile protesting farmers also Siege the BJP whose government in the Centre, there were also little clashes between farmers and the police.
Farmers rejected the government’s proposals for changes in-laws, even as the Centre in a written bid assured the minimum support price for crops. The farmers’ groups received the request with amendments that the government intends to carry out.
