As per news report of The Indian Express, Actor Kamal Haasan’s Makkal Needhi Maiam stated that it will take part in the ongoing farmers protest that entered 11th day on Sunday. Issuing a statement, the party said that a 10-member team will reach Delhi soon to join the farmers who have been camping at various borders of the national capital seeking repeal of three farm laws enacted in September. The talks between the government and the representatives of farmer unions remained inconclusive on Saturday after the latter spurned the agriculture minister’s offer to amend the farm laws and stuck to the maximalist position demanding a repeal of all three ordinances.
