Justin Trudeau, Canadian Prime Minister on this Tuesday expressed his harmony towards the farmers protesting in India against the new agricultural reforms. He spoke in support of the farmers in Delhi against the laws. He also said that his country will always be in support of a peaceful protest.
Trudeau said on an online event to mark the 551st birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, “The situation is concerning and we all are worried about family and friends. I know that’s a reminder for you. But let me remind you, Canada will always be there to defend the rights of peaceful protestors”.
Trudeau is the first international leader to comment on a escalating protest against the farms laws saying that his believes in the process of dialogue. “We reached out to multiple means, directly to India authorities to highlight our concerns,” said Trudeau.
The protestors entered Delhi on the sixth day of the protest with tear gas and water cannons as the police refused them to enter. But in due course they were allowed to enter the outskirts and were designated a protest site.
They demanded for a stage protest in the city against the new laws. The laws are anticipated to bring reforms in the agricultural sector, giving farmers the prospect to sell directly to the market avoiding the middlemen.
Furthermore, the centre is expected to hold a meeting to find solution for the protestors.
