Protesting farmers celebrated the festival of colours at Uttar Pradesh’s Ghazipur border on March 29. Farmers were seen beating drums, dancing, singing, and playing Holi.

I request the government to pay heed to our demands as soon as possible," a farmer said. The farmers from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at several Delhi border points, including Tikri, Singhu and Ghazipur, since November 28 last year. They have been demanding a complete repeal of the three farm laws and a legal guarantee on the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for their crops. Watch the full video for more.

Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) spokesperson Rakesh Tikait blamed the Narendra Modi govt for the attack on his convoy. Stones were allegedly pelted at the farmer leader's car, damaging the rear windshield. “The government is responsible, who else can it be? It's their youth wing. They (attackers) were saying, 'Rakesh Tikait, Go Back’. Where should I go? They hurled stones and used lathis. Why are they fighting us, we are farmers, not a political party,” Tikait said. The alleged attack took place on Friday afternoon in Rajasthan’s Alwar district. Tikait, however, was not in his car when the stones were allegedly pelted.
