Home Minister Amit Shah today benched a meeting with higher police officials to review the situation at protest sites and emphasized the measures to avoid any incident of violence.

The Union Ministry has also requested the farmers to not allow any political person in their protest who tries to organize riots in the country.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that the bills are in the favor of farmers and we will be keeping our promise of MSP. It will be wrong to say that these bills are against the farmers and the opposition parties are misleading the farmers.
