West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee spoke to agitating farmers in New Delhi on Friday. Mamata Banerjee made multiple telephone calls, speaking to those leading the protest at the Haryana-Delhi border.
While protesters shared their demands with the Bengal CM, Mamata Banerjee assured full support to their demands seeking a rollback of the farm bills.
Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien reached the protest site on Friday morning as Mamata Banerjee’s emissary. He met various groups of farmers who have parked their tractors on the highway at the Singhu Border.
Demanding an immediate withdrawal of the farm laws, Banerjee has threatened to launch statewide agitation against it.
Throwing her weight behind the farmers who are camping in New Delhi, Banerjee had tweeted, “I am very much concerned about the farmers, their lives and livelihood. GOI must withdraw the anti-farmer bills. If they do not do so immediately we will agitate throughout the state and the country. From the very start, we have been strongly opposing these anti-farmer bills.”
