Speaking to ANI, Saleem Khan, Shivamogga district president, SDPI, said the protest was organised in solidarity with the numerous farmers' protest across the county.
"All the seven bills that the Central government passed in this monsoon session are anti-farmer, anti-labour, and anti-Dalit. We are protesting in solidarity with all the farmers across the country," he said.
He said his party is demanding that the Central government revoke all the bills.
"We are also demanding that the government take the amendments back, or we'll stage larger protests across the country," he said.
