Lohri 2021: Protesting farmers in Delhi to burn copies of new farm laws

New Delhi: Farmers protesting at Delhi borders said have took a decision to burn copies of the Centre's new farm laws on the festival of Lohri on Wednesday, as a mark of protest against the central government laws.

Lohri is mostly celebrated in north India to mark the beginning of the spring season. Bonfires are a special characteristic of this festival.

The unions have welcomed the top court's order to hold the implementation of the laws but they have doubts over the neutrality of the members of the committee. 

The Supreme Court stayed the implementation of the controversial farm laws till further orders on Tuesday. SC has set up the four-member committee to resolve the impasse between the Centre and the farmer unions protesting at Delhi's borders over the laws.
