In a statement on Sunday, an umbrella group representing different farmers’ unions slammed the government for saying it would engage in talks with the farmers if they moved their protest off the roads into a designated stadium site. “The government, if serious about addressing the demands of farmers, should stop laying down any conditions and should come straight out with the solution it is offering,” the statement said. Modi sought to allay farmer concerns during his monthly radio address, saying “farmers will get new rights and opportunities” through these laws. “Farmers are not fools who would not understand what is in their interest,” said Yogendra Yadav, president of Swaraj India - an opposition party. The farmers’ unions called on farmers in other states to expand the protests from Tuesday, while urging farmers in neighbouring states and others to join demonstrations in Delhi.

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Some of the world’s leading long-distance runners participated in a half-marathon in New Delhi on Sunday, even as India’s capital grapples with a surge in COVID-19 cases and air pollution that has recently been among the world’s worst. Although air quality was poor on Sunday, the runners got a bit of a reprieve, as pollution levels in the capital were dramatically better than those of recent weeks. New Delhi’s Air Quality Index was at 252 on a scale of 500, registering at “poor” levels, according to the Central Pollution Control Board. Defending champions from Ethiopia, Andamlak Belihu and Tsehay Gemechu, were among the elite athletes running the 21-kilometre (13.1 mile) race. “The Airtel Delhi Half Marathon will follow the highest level of safety standards, with bio-secure zones to ensure a COVID free race for the elite runners,” the organisers had said in a press statement earlier.

Police fired several rounds of tear gas at some places on the outskirts of Delhi and used water cannons at entry points to stop the farmers coming into the city centre. Television showed plumes of smoke and some people throwing stones at police as thousands pressed against barricades, waving flags and sticks. Many farmer organisations oppose the new law, saying it would leave small growers with little bargaining power. The new law was aimed at making the vast agriculture sector more efficient by freeing up farmers who want to sell directly to big retailers such as Walmart. Suburban train services into Delhi were suspended, the Delhi Metro said in a post on Twitter, in a bid to stop the protesters from riding the trains.

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - New Delhi police agreed to let thousands of Indian farmers stage a peaceful protest inside the capital on Friday after initially blocking demonstrators on the outskirts and firing tear gas and water cannon at them. Clashes ensued, with police unleashing tear gas and water cannon to push back the farmers. It hopes to bring new investment to the farm sector and fix the supply chains that lose one-fourth of India’s produce to wastage. “The new laws holds the promise of bringing revolutionary change to farmers’ lives,” Farm Minister Narendra Singh Tomar told Reuters affiliate ANI. The farm sector contributes nearly 15% of India’s $2.9 trillion economy and employs around half its 1.3 billion people.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs said a protest was lodged with Pakistan’s charge d’affaires in New Delhi. Tension between the nuclear-armed rivals has sharpened since last August, when Modi’s government ended the autonomy of its only Muslim-majority region. India will hold district-level elections this month in Jammu and Kashmir, the first such exercise there since the federal government took away the area’s statehood more than a year ago.
