Delhi: Tamil Nadu farmers wear sarees, break bangles on 34th day of protest

The farmers from Tamil Nadu wore sarees and were beating their chests, and crying on streets of the national capital to mark their protest.

On 34th day of the protest, Tamil Nadu farmers today broke bangles worn by them as an act of protest to attract the attention of the central government towards the plight of a widow when a farmer commits suicide.

The farmers wore sarees and were beating their chests, and crying on streets of the national capital to mark their protest.

A group of musicians also reached Jantar Mantar on Sunday, who sat with the farmers and sang various folk songs and other songs of dissent to show their solidarity. Songs about farmer suicides, struggles, fight for Cauvery and anger against the hydrocarbon project were sung during the protest.

However, as a brief respite for the protesting farmers, a resolution in their favour was passed in the DMK convened all-party meet. April 25 has been declared as a state-wide bandh to highlight the plight of the farmers and an all-party delegation is also trying to seek appointment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
