Amid the ongoing monsoon session of Parliament, protesting farmers will hold a 'Kisan Sansad' at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi from today onwards. The agitating farmers, who have been protesting against the Centre’s farm laws at the Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur borders since last November, plan to hold ‘Kisan Sansads’ on each working day of the Parliament until the monsoon session ends.

Here is all you need to know about 'Kisan Sansad':

Over 200 farmers today protested at Delhi's Jantar Mantar against three Central farm laws. They arrived in buses from the capital's Singhu border point, escorted by the police.

The Delhi government and police agreed to let them hold the Kisan Sansad from today till

August 9 between 11am and 5pm.

The DDMA has allowed a maximum of 200 protesters bearing identity cards at Jantar Mantar each day between 11am and 5pm.

The list of the 200 would be shared with police each day in order to avoid a repeat of the violence that broke out this January 26.

Protesters will appoint a ‘speaker’ and ‘deputy speaker’ each day to coordinate the discussions on agrarian issues.

Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi and other Congress MPs protest near Gandhi Statue in Parliament House Complex against farm laws.

The farmers have been protesting against three agrarian laws since November last year at the Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur borders of Delhi. They are demanding the repeal of the farm laws enacted in September 2020.
