Now, TN farmers enact roles of ‘mentally unstable' persons to demand loan waiver
As a part of their protest on Wednesday, the farmers enacted the roles of mentally unstable homeless people, reports PTI. The farmers were seen wearing torn clothes and ruffled hair during their protest.
Two of their main demands are--loan waiver and compensation for their crop failure. On Tuesday, a man wearing a mask of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was seen flogging the protesters. Actually, the man in Modi mask was one of the protesting farmers.
The farmers told the media that the idea of making one of their friends wear a Modi mask and PM's trademark jacket and kurta and make him flog the farmers was to showcase the 'insensitive attitude' of the Centre towards their plight.
Recently, we saw three TN farmers staging a nude protest right in front of the Prime Minister Office after they were denied an audience with PM Modi. Few days before that, a man wearing a Modi mask was seen in the protest site. The rest of the protesters were seen pleading in front of 'masked' PM Modi.
The farmers have been protesting for more than a month now in Delhi. Around 80-odd farmers protesting at Jantar Mantar caught the attention of the media, when they found a couple of skulls with the farmers.
The farmers started their protest by showcasing skulls at the protest venue. The skulls are said to belong to the farmers who committed suicide due to ongoing drought in the state.
