New Delhi, 7 Feb (IANS): It has been over two months since the farmers’ agitation began at the borders of the national capital against the three farm laws. Former Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat also visited the Ghazipur border protest site on Sunday evening to lend his support to the farmers.
