    Farmers Protest Live Updates: Farmers On Day-Long Hunger Strike Against New Farm Laws

    Farmers Protest in Delhi LIVE Updates: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is also holding a one-day fast in support of the farmers’ protest on Monday.

    New Delhi: 

    Leaders of farmer unions who have been protesting against the Centre’s new farm laws are on a one-day hunger strike today. The farmers will also be holding demonstrations across the country. The hunger strike between 8 am to 5 pm on Monday is part of the farmers’ plan to intensify their agitation from December 14. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is also holding a one-day fast in support of the farmers’ protest. He appealed to people to fast wherever they are in support of protesting farmers, and asserted that farmers will win in the end.

    The chief minister also urged his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteers, supporters, as well as the people of the country to join the farmers’ agitation.

    Addressing a press conference at Singhu border, where the farmers have been camping in agitation, farmer leader Gurnam Singh Chaduni said the leaders will observe the hunger strike at their respective places.

    “Also dharnas will be staged at all district headquarters across the country. The protest will go on as usual,” he told reporters.

    Even as more farmers from Punjab and other states arrived near the Singhu and Tikri borders to join the sit-in which has been continuing for 18 days, Union Minister Kailash Choudhary said the government will soon decide a date for the next meeting and expressed confidence that the issues will be resolved this time.

    Five rounds of talks have failed to end the stalemate and the sixth was cancelled on December 9.
