A highly offensive video from the ongoing farmers' protest is going viral on social media in which a woman is wishing death upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi in front of a gathering.

The slogan raised goes like this: 'Shiksha bech kar kha gaya re Modi mar ja tu'(Die Modi, you have sold education),'Rail bech kar kha gaya re Modi mar ja tu' (Die Modi, you have sold the Railways), 'Desh bech kar kha gaya re Modi mar ja tu '(Die Modi, you have sold the nation),' Kisano ko dhoka de gaya re Modi mar ja tu', (Die Modi, you have cheated the farmers).

The protests are led by a number of farmers organisation near Delhi-NCR. While it wouldn't be prudent to assert that this slogan has the approval of all protesting farmers, this particular gathering was held under the auspices of 'Akhil Bharatiya Kisaan Sabha' (All India Kisan Sabha) which is an affiliate of the Communist Party of India.

The farmers of Punjab and Haryana are protesting against the farm bills which were passed by the Modi govt. at the Centre.
