The situation is concerning: Trudeau on farmers' protests in India

OTTAWA: Commenting on farmers’ protests in India during an online event to mark Gurpurab, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau said the “situation is concerning”.

“We are all very worried about family and friends…Let me remind you, Canada will always be there to defend the right of peaceful protest,” Trudeau said.

Canada reached out to Indian authorities to highlight their concerns, Trudeau added.

For the last five days, thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh have been marching toward the national capital and are nearing the borders.

Peaceful sit-ins by farmers, mostly from Punjab and Haryana, continued for the sixth straight day today at the Singhu and Tikri borders, while the numbers of protestors swelled at the Ghazipur border.

The Central Government of India will today hold talks with farmers in in an attempt to find a resolution to the massive protests.
