Think of troops at borders, light a ‘diya’ for them: PM Narendra Modi
Sunday, 25 October 2020 “We must also think of our braveheart soldiers who are firmly stationed on our borders in the line of duty, even during these festive times, all in the service and security of Mother India. We have to light a ‘diya’ (lamp) at home in honour of these brave sons and daughters of Mother India,” PM Modi said.
Protesting farmers announced a nationwide strike on December 8. They said they said they will block all toll plazas and roads leading to Delhi. General Secretary of BKU-Lakhowal, HS Lakhowal said, “In the 4th round of talks with the Centre, we made it clear that the farm laws should be revoked completely. Centre wants to make amends to the farm laws but we disagree with it. We made it clear to the Centre that we will only go back after Centre withdraws the farm laws. On December 5, effigies of PM Modi’s govt and other corporate houses will be burnt across the country. We have called for Bharat Bandh on December 8.” Fifth round of talks with the Central government is scheduled for December 5. After 4th round of talks the government agreed to review farmers’ key demands. However, farmers stuck to their demand of repealing the three farm laws. Watch the full video for more.
