While I understand the general public's excitement, there's a bit of a mouthbreather quality to them. None of these factors are trivial to a trucker that must get a cargo to its destination on time.

Thousands of farmers from across the country converged on Parliament Street here on Monday, protesting against what they called "non-fulfillment" of promises made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the loan waivers and Minimum Support Price.

According to the AIKSCC "steady rise in input costs, like fuel, pesticides and fertilisers and even water, and slashing of subsidies by the government" are some of the key factors behind cost versus income imbalance presently been faced by the farmers.

On November 20, a draft "bill" encompassing the two demands will be introduced and passed after debate by the farmers' parliament.
