Leaders of 29 farmer unions walked out of meeting with Agriculture Secretary to discuss the recently enacted farm laws. They tore copies of the laws outside Krishi Bhawan in Delhi on October 14. Speaking to media, a farmer union leader said, "We weren't satisfied with discussions so we walked out and we want these black laws to be scrapped. Secretary said he'll communicate our demands further," he added. Another farmer union leader added, "We walked out as no minister came for meeting. We want these laws to be taken back."
