The former Agriculture Minister also said that the farmers protest would not be limited to the national capital, farmers from all across the country may join the protest.
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief and former Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar on Sunday accused that the Centre passed the agricultural laws in haste and warned that if the situation is not resolved soon more farmers from across the country will join the protest.
"Farmers from Punjab and Haryana are the main producers of wheat and paddy, and they are protesting. If the situation is not resolved soon, we will see farmers from across the country joining them, " Pawar said on the ongoing farmers' protest who have been asking for repealing of the farm laws.
The former Agriculture Minister also said that the farmers' protest would not be limited to the national capital, farmers from all across the country may join the protest.
"When Bill was being passed, we had requested government that they should not be in a hurry, it should be sent to Select Committee and a discussion is needed, but that didn't happen and the Bill was passed in haste. Now the government is facing problems because of that haste," Pawar said commenting on the procedure adopted to pass the farm laws.
Meanwhile, the protest by farmers agitating against the three agriculture laws passed by the Centre entered its eleventh day today with demonstrations in Sant Nirankari Samagam ground in Burari on the outskirts of Delhi and other border areas.
