Farmers held a protest in Phase 8 of Mohali against the three controversial farm laws and pledged to spread awareness regarding the issues with it on Sunday.
The protesting farmers again demanded the roll back of the farm laws and accused the union government of collaborating with the capitalists.
The protest started with many farm activists expressing their views about the laws.
The farmer leaders said that they will also spread awareness about the farm laws.
The leaders, while addressing the gathering, said that the protests will continue until the union government scraps the three farm laws.
