The farmers have been protesting against the farm laws that were passed by the Centre since November. They have been braving many hurdles that came on their way all these while. However, even after two months, the conclusion still seems obscure. Meanwhile, many old farmers are risking their health conditions to keep up with the fight.
Amidst this, many farmers have been dying due to health ailments, accidents, suicides, and more. At the beginning of this month, some 50 farmers had died approximately. Claims have been made that there are more. However, there is no official record of the deaths of farmers at the protest site.
Just today, another farmer died who was found under a tractor amidst the chaos that erupted today during the Republic Day tractor rally.
