“India is in an agitative mode, particularly in Delhi. They (BJP government) are doing drama in the name of discussion,” he vehemently said .

“I welcome all our alliance party members, MLAs, MPs who participate in the protest. We observe two minutes of silence for those farmers who lost their lives in the protest,” Stalin added.

Lashing out at the BJP-led Centre, Stalin questioned the ”haste” in enacting the laws during the COVID-19 pandemic and also hit out at the union government over its labour reforms and the draft Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) among others. Stalin said
