International Yoga Day 2017: Farmers Perform ‘Shavaasana’ In Protest

Farmers across the country used this non-violent mode of protest to attract government’s attention towards their plight. “Our non-violent movement will continue. But yes we want to tell people across the length and breadth of this country the pitiable condition of farmers,” Shiv Kumar, chief of Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Sangathan was quoted as saying by Business Standard on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Congress party workers, too,  performed shavaasna outside the Bhopal party officer to protest the Mandsaur deaths.
