Watch: Alleged BJP workers thrash JAP men during protests against farm bills

Alleged workers of the BJP and the Jan Adhikar Party clashed during protest against the farm bills in Patna. The incident reportedly happened when workers of Pappu Yadav’s JAP allegedly tried to enter the office of the BJP.

Many political parties have joined protests against the agri bills that have been passed in parliament and await Presidential assent to become laws. Farmer groups in several parts of the country are protesting against the agri bills. Farmers are apprehensive that the entry of corporates in the agriculture sector will reduce their power to negotiate fair prices and also fear that the system of MSP will eventually be diluted. The Modi government has said on numerous occasions that the system of MSP and APMCs will not be done away with. BJP has also accused opposition parties of trying to mislead farmers on the issue by spreading lies. Watch the full video for all the details.
