: Farmer unions observed a day-long relay hunger strike on Monday at all protest sites to press for the repeal of the Centre’s new agri laws, even as the government has asked them to choose a convenient date for the next round of talks so that the ongoing agitation could end at the earliest.

A 65-year-old Punjab farmer protesting against the Centre’s agriculture laws attempted suicide today by taking some poisonous substance near the Delhi’s Singhu border.

Thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, UP and some other states are protesting against the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act.
