UNITED NATIONS/LONDON, Dec 5 - The spokesperson for UN chief Antonio Guterres and a group of 36 cross-party UK parliamentarians have come out in support of the agitating Indian farmers, saying people have a right to demonstrate peacefully and the authorities should let them do so.
These reactions came even as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reiterated his support for the protesting farmers despite India�s strong reaction to his earlier remarks that Canada will always be there to defend the rights of peaceful protests.
Thousands of farmers are protesting on various borders of Delhi since November 26, seeking repeal of three farm laws enacted in September.
In London, a group of 36 cross-party parliamentarians have written to UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, asking him to make representations to his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar regarding the impact on British Punjabis affected by the demonstrations by farmers against new agricultural reforms in India. � PTI
