Farmers are holding Kisan Sansad protest against three farm laws at Jantar Mantar in Delhi.

Opposition parties have decided to visit Jantar Mantar near the Parliament to meet farmers in a bid to express solidarity with them. Farmers are holding ‘Kisan Sansad’ at the Jantar Mantar to press for their demand to repeal the new farm laws.

Senior Congress leader and LoP in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said that all opposition parties will go to Jantar Mantar today to support farmers’ demand for repeal of the laws. Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi will also join in.

Opposition parties have stalled all proceedings in both Houses of Parliament over the Pegasus controversy and the agitating farmers’ demand for repeal of three farm laws. The opposition leaders have held several closed-door meetings which set the tone for an anti-BJP front during the ongoing Monsoon Session of Parliament.

The farmers under the banner of Samyukta Kisan Morcha were given special permission to protest at Jantar Mantar during the Monsoon Session. They have been allowed to protest at Jantar Mantar till August 9, but only on weekdays.
