This international support comes at a time when the Narendra Modi government has been claiming an “international conspiracy” is being planned to “tarnish India’s image.”

Meanwhile, the government has still not managed to address farmers’ concerns.

Farmers continue to protest at Delhi borders

Thousands of farmers continue to peacefully protest at the borders of Delhi for the third month now.

Several rounds of talks between the farmers and government officials have remained inconclusive.

Following the violence during a farmers’ rally in Delhi on Jan. 26, the authorities have turned the protesting sites around Delhi almost into war zones with heavy security deployment, and iron spikes and barbed wires to stop the movement to and from the sites. Earlier, the government had also suspended internet connectivity around the sites as a mere “precautionary measure.” Internet services have now been resumed but connectivity problems persist.

Unfazed by the challenges, protesting farmers are trying to keep their momentum going.
