In a tweet in Hindi, Mayawati said, “To fulfil the demands of the agitating farmers, BSP requests the Central Government to withdraw these farm laws. I hope that no new tradition starts on Republic Day and there is no untoward incident in the national capital.”

Farmers across the country are expected to march towards Delhi to participate in the scheduled rally. Tractors from Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan have reached the Tikri border as farmers have been protesting for almost two months.

The 11th round of talks between the farmers and the government on Friday was inconclusive.

Negotiations between farmer unions and the government have broken down, with the former insisting on their demand to repeal three new agricultural laws and later rethink their proposal on these laws for about 18 months.

Farmers have been protesting against three newly enacted farm laws since November 26 at various borders of the national capital – the Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; Farmer Empowerment and Protection Agreement on Price Assurance and Agricultural Services Act 2020 and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
