Farmer protest: BJP loses ally in Haryana; Sombir Sangwan backs protestors

The Bharatiya Janata Party came under fresh pressure as protests by farmers continue.

The BJP-led coalition government in Haryana lost an ally as independent MLA Sombir Sangwan withdrew support.

He said he couldn't stand with the ML Khattar-led NDA government while farmers faced injustice.

A day earlier, he had quit as chairman of the state Livestock Development Board.

Farmers from many states have converged on the national capital, seeking revocation of 3 recent agri-reform laws.

They also want a legal guarantee of minimum support price (MSP).

The Central government had called farmer leaders for talks on December 1.
