Opposition MPs stage protest march in Parliament over farm bills

The Opposition parties on Wednesday took out a silent protest march at the Parliament premises over the farm bills passed recently. The MPs carried placards with messages like ‘Save Farmers, Save Workers, Save Democracy’, written on them.

The protesting MPs marched from the Mahatma Gandhi statue to the Ambedkar statue on the premises.

“All MPs of the Congress and like-minded parties are marching from Gandhi statue to Ambedkar statue in Parliament protesting the anti-Farmers, anti-Workers Bills that have been rubberstamped in Parliament in the most undemocratic manner by the Modi government,” Congress leader Jairam Ramesh tweeted.

Earlier, opposition leaders held a meeting in the chamber of Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad and decided to continue their protest against the farm Bills.

Several Opposition parties have protested the passage of the farm Bills in Parliament and have boycotted the proceedings of both Houses.
