It states that demonstrators can continue to protest peacefully after the threat of coronavirus is over, and given that the number of COVID cases is increasing, it is paramount that the protest be stopped immediately.

Protests by farmers against Centre’s three farm laws continued on Tuesday, the 20th day on the Singhu border between Delhi and Haryana.

Farmers have been protesting on different borders of the national capital against the three newly enacted farm laws – Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
