2020 Indian Farmers Protest Highlights: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that a conspiracy is going on around Delhi to confuse farmers. He said that the farmers are being scared that after the new agriculture reforms the land of farmers will be occupied by others. “Tell me, if a dairy has a contract of collecting milk from you, do they take away your cattle too? the PM asked dairy farmers in Kutch, Gujarat.
Slamming the opposition and activists who have been protesting against the laws, the prime minister said that the agriculture reforms that have taken place are exactly what farmer bodies and even Opposition have been asking over the years. “The government of India is always committed to farmer welfare and we will keep assuring the farmers and addressing their concerns,” he said. The PM also attacked Congress, saying people who are sitting in the Opposition and misleading farmers were in the favour of these farm reforms during their government. “But they could not make a decision during their government. Today when the nation has taken a historical step then these people are misleading farmers,” he said.

The deadlock between farmers and Centre has been continuing with no side willing to concede ground.

Thousands of farmers have been sitting on borders and national highways connecting UP, Haryana to Delhi.
