Lockdown is not an option but will put some restrictions to fight against Covid-19 as cases are increasing. We will announce the new restrictions in the coming days, he said.

Union agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar yesterday requested agitating farmers to stop their protests against the three farm laws citing the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic and resume discussions with the government. Now the second wave has begun hence farmers and their unions should follow the guidelines of Covid 19. They should postpone the protest and have words with us.
