The students, led by the Students’ Federation of India (SFI), sat on hunger strike against the three farm laws introduced by the central government. Students raised slogans against the central government and demanded the release of all the arrested farmers and protestors. Holding posters stating ‘repeal all the charges against farmers’, the students condemned police action against the protesting farmers.
“We extend our solidarity to all the farmers who are a part of an historic protest that is bringing together each and every one of us. Whether it is sitting on a hunger strike for them here at the university or going to Delhi and protesting with them, we stand in the fight against the three farm laws,” said Ayusha Singh, secretary, UoH SFI unit.
Thousands of farmers have been at loggerheads with the Central government against three farm laws since November, 2020. Recently, a massive tractors rally was also held in Delhi on Republic Day as a mark of protest. Similar rallies were held across the country.
