Joining massive demonstrations of farmers taking place in several parts of the country, thousands marched to the Raj Bhavan in Patna on Tuesday, calling for the central government’s new agricultural laws to be scrapped, NDTV reported.

According to the report, the march started from Patna’s famous Gandhi Maidan and the police blocked the protest at Dak Bungalow Chowk, using barricades and batons, resulting in a clash. The protesters were mainly led by members of various Left parties and unions

The central government says the laws will increase farmers’ income as it links potential bulk buyers such as Reliance, WalMart and Adani Enterprises directly with farmers, bypassing wholesale markets and commission agents.
