A massive farmers rally took place in Delhi on Wednesday. Thousands of farmers’, workers and youth from all across the country came out and took out a march from Ram Lila Maidan to Parliament Street in the national capital.
#KisanLongMarch and #KisanMazdoorFightBack has been trending throughout on Twitter during their protest. This long protest march was widely dominated and participated by left parties and their respective wings, but one thing was common that their protest has one common agenda of unmasking the Modi govt anti farmer’s policy.

Though our prime minister in his ‘Man Ki Baat’ program have talked about farmers plight and through his Namo app video conferencing also showed the nation that how much he cares about their sufferings. But the irony is, when farmers themselves have come to Delhi and protesting on the road, no single word in their support has been said either by him or by his party.
While the main opposition party ‘Congress’ has come out in support of these protesting farmers and supported their demands on Twitter.
We stand with the farmers in their fight for getting an appropriate MSP, loan waiver and their rights on their land. #KisanMazdoorFightBack

On the other hand, the ruling BJP is busy in self promotion and focusing on Atal Vikas Yatra.
Joining the protest a large number of human rights activists have also joined in Delhi and they are up with their placards opposing the recent arrest of human right activists and poets.
It is also very interesting to note that the ruling party of Delhi -‘AAP’, is also silent over the event. Not a single word on such huge turnout of farmers in national capital even.
Nonetheless, it was a day of ‘red sea’ on the road of parliament from Connaught Place in Delhi.
