Watch: Amit Shah’s message to protesting farmers as they camp in Delhi, border
Union Home Minister Amit Shah issued an appeal to farmers protesting in and near the national capital.

Shah said that if farmers want talks earlier, they must shift from the Burari ground they are camping on currently, to one specified by Delhi Police.

The government has dismissed the concerns, stating that the laws aim to liberate farmers from middlemen and mandis. Watch the full video for more.
