For the past few days, farmers from the states of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh are on the streets in protest against the three draconian farm bills introduced by the Central Government. As a result of which the farmers’ livelihood now tends to depend only on big private companies.

While this ‘Dilli Chalo’ protest-cum-procession by various farmers’ organisations is on, there has been a spate of visuals doing the rounds on social media in which it is clearly observed that what hardships farmers have been facing to enter the national capital just to make their demands met. In this chilly onset of winter, water cannons are being rained on the farmers, tear gas has been lodged, along with the police brutality. 

But the farmers aren’t budging at all and supporting them in various forms are the commonmen of our country. Not just them, but some celebrities too are extending their support through the digital screens.
