Farmers today have protested at New Delhi's Jantar Mantar in opposition of three central farm laws. According to them, the movement, which includes a Kisan Sansad, is taking place in groups of 200 people while Parliament is in session.  Farmers have been protesting since November. The Delhi administration and police had agreed yesterday to allow the Kisan Sansad to be held between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. from today until August 9. This necessitated certain changes to the disaster management rules. The Covid protocol must be adhered to.

Several times today, the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned due to protests over a variety of issues, including the farm laws. Some members of the Congress have stated that the House will not be able to operate unless the issue is resolved. They had previously staged a protest in front of Parliament. A dialogue was also desired by the Shiromani Akali Dal. New agriculture laws are good, according to Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar. If farmers communicate their concerns, he believes, laws may be reviewed "point by point." In order to avoid a repeat of the violence on January 26, the police increased their monitoring and established plans to deal with any unforeseen incidents. They've instructed Delhi Metro to keep an additional eye on seven stations and, if necessary, close them. According to the police, traffic flow may be disrupted on some Delhi routes. They've made plans to keep troublemakers out of Tikri.
