India on Tuesday wrote an open letter to clear the ‘misunderstanding’ among British MPs about the peasant movement taking place in various borders of Delhi. It said that many people living abroad are trying to further the movement through misinformation due to their selfishness. The London-based Indian High Commission has written an open letter to British MP Claudia Webb stating the Indian government’s approach to the movement. The Web has consistently raised the issue of the peasant movement inside and outside the British Parliament. He is a Leicester East MP who lives in large numbers of people of Indian origin.
The High Commission of India has said that information about the farmers’ movement is being shared with the web so that they can remove their misconceptions about agricultural reforms and claim the right of peaceful protesters. In addition, it was informed that the central government understands the concerns of the agitating farmers.
It is further stated in the open letter that the efforts are ongoing, but that the Government of India is aware of its efforts abroad for its own sake, trying to promote protests through false information and inflammatory claims. It is not helpful to increase dialogue between protesters and the government or to solve problems through democratic processes.
Webb and Labor MP Tanmanjit Singh Dhesi are among the first MPs in the British Parliament to raise the issue of the peasant movement in the House. In the last couple of days, the web has tweeted about Disha Ravi, a 21-year-old activist arrested by Delhi police in the Kisan movement and toolkit.

The reform, which protects and empowers farmers in India, is based on the recommendations of experts from committees analyzing the challenges of agriculture in India over the past 20 years, the High Commission of India said in an open letter. It is further stated that there is a debate in Parliament regarding these laws and that it has begun to benefit ten crore small farmers.
The letter stated that 11 rounds of talks have been held with farmers who have problems with these reforms. The government has suggested a number of ways to address those farmers’ problems, including avoiding laws in the short term and making several amendments to the laws. However, agitated farmers refused to accept these options.
The Indian High Commission said the government and the security forces treated the protesters with utmost respect and restraint. Many details on the three agricultural laws are provided in this letter.
