 Farmers protesting the new farm legislation gathered on Thursday to speak out against the significant price hikes in gasoline, diesel, and cooking oil, urging that the charges behalf immediately. The two-hour-long demonstration, organized by the Samyukt Kisan Morcha, saw farmers from around the country congregate on the margins of national and state roads with their cars in an attempt to bring the government's attention to their hardship following the gasoline price rise. Farmers demonstrated for two hours today over the high cost of petrol.
 

We demand that they be immediately halved. We demand that they be cut in half right away. According to farmer leader Lakhbir Singh, protesters came their motorbikes, automobiles, tractors, and other vehicles and staged sit-in protests. He went on to say that the protests were held in a peaceful manner. Although petrol prices in Delhi and other cities surpassed Rs 100 per liter on Wednesday, diesel is now priced at Rs 89.59 per liter.

Avtar Singh Mehma, a further farmer leader, said rallies were staged not only along the Delhi border, where farmers are protesting the three agricultural laws but also along numerous state and national roads across the country. Though it would be too early to predict the number of participants, rallies were staged in thousands of locations around the country. Because the government is formed by the citizens, it is critical that it pays attention to them.

He believes that the government should take control of fuel pricing rather than letting it to companies. Farmers commemorated horn Baja diwas' on Thursday as part of the protest, in which they beeped their cars for five minutes to catch the attention of the government, which, they claim, has not been listening to them notwithstanding their seven-month-long protest.
