Shivamogga: As part of Bharat Bandh the protesting farmers symbolically burnt Farmers’ Law here in front of the deputy commissioner’s office here on Friday March 26.
Speaking at the protest, farmer leader H.R. Basavarajappa questioned authorities how a statement that turn Bengaluru into Delhi can attract FIR by the police in both Haveri and Shivamogga against farmer leader Rakesh Tikait. Tikait also asked farmers to get tractors to Bengaluru as tractors are farming equipment and how this again can be an inciting call, he wondered.
Warning that if farmers’ law is not taken back, government might face difficult consequences, he said that the local protest was in solidarity with farmers’ protest in Delhi which completes its four months today.
