New Delhi: The Congress on Friday made an appeal to the people to join the farmers’ agitation and oppose the Farm Bills, which have been passed by Parliament.

Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said, “Nation should stand with 62 crore farmers who are protesting against the draconian law.”

He alleged that the Prime Minister has done this to help the crony capitalists, and “he does not care for the poor”.

Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said in a tweet, “This is to make farmers slaves and the farmers will become labourers in their fields and neither they will get the MSP nor respect.”

While cutting across the party lines, day long statewide protests by farmers in Punjab and Haryana began on Friday morning.

Heavy police force has been deployed in both the states to deal with any untoward situation.

With 86,052 new cases in the last 24 hours, India’s coronavirus cases are nearing six million-mark, according to the health ministry updates shared on Friday.

There were 1,141 fatalities also confirmed in the 24 hour-period bringing the death toll to 92,290. The total infections stand at  5,818,571, including 9,70,116 active cases and 4,756,165 people getting cured/discharged/migrated. 

India’s Covid-19 recovery rate stands at 81.74 per cent and the mortality rate remains below 1.6 per cent, according to government figures. 

In a positive development, Wednesday was the sixth consecutive day when the number of people recovered in the country was more than the total number of cases detected in the 24-hours period. 

In the last few days, India has seen a significant drop in daily cases, but there needs to be more evidence to suggest whether the nation has surpassed the virus’s peak or not. 

Maharashtra continues to be India’s worst-hit state with nearly 300,000 active cases and a death toll of 34,345. 

Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said he had been told by experts that the second wave of Covid-19 in the national capital has peaked. 

Globally, the United States is the worst-hit country with over 7 million cases and 200,000 deaths.
