Yadav said that the farmers’ protest will continue indefinitely if the central government does not comply with their demands. “The main demands include the repeal of the three central agricultural laws and how they are against farmers and against the people. The government does not need to take repressive measures as this movement is peaceful. Wherever the police stop them at a barricade, they, instead of opposing, will sit on the road to protest, ”Yadav said.
