AAP legislators also burnt copies of the farm laws on the assembly premises in favor of farmers.

The Chief Minister told the Delhi Assembly, the laws have been made for “electoral funding of the BJP and not the farmers” he added that “I am pained that I have to do this. I did not intend to, but I cannot betray the farmers of my country who have been sleeping on the streets in the cold, when the temperature is just 2 degrees Celsius,” said CM.

Farmer Protest's entered day 23,  at Delhi- Haryana border where the farmers are battling for their rights to repeal the law. Protesters sacrifice their lives due to heavy wind in winters and keep protesting in 2 degree temperature. CM said “how many lives will the Centre take before listening to farmers?". 

Arvind Kejriwal also talked about the previous protest which was in 1907 at the time of British rule. Protest known as Pagdi Sambhal Jatta, was also a Punjab protest against the British. He allegedly said that “same as this agitation, it was also for 3 laws and it was ran for 9 months” he also added even then the British government offered the same amendment in laws but Punjab wanted to repeal the law” at the end British government rolled back the laws. Moreover, the CM made a plea to the centre to repeal the 3 farm-laws and not become worse than the British.
