The protest was recorded in Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai, Tiruchirappalli, Tirunelveli and various other places across the state.

Tamil Nadu opposition DMK with its allied took to streets in various cities of Tamil Nadu on Monday to protest against three contentious farm bills.

The protest was recorded in Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai, Tiruchirappalli, Tirunelveli and various other places across the state.

Addressing a demonstration at a village in neighbouring Kancheepuram district as part of the state-wide protest, DMK Chief M K Stalin alleged the new laws would drive farmers away from their lands. "Take back farm laws," "We will not rest until the farmers interests are protected," "farmers betrayed," and "farm laws lead to hoarding," were among the slogans raised during the demonstrations.

Kerala was readying to approach the Supreme Court against the laws and Tamil Nadu government should follow suit and if this does not happen, "we (DMK) as an opposition party are ready to go to court on behalf of farmers and the people," he said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had often said that he was the son of a poor mother and "this son of a poor mother is now making a large number of Indians poor" the DMK chief charged.

Attacking Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, he said though the AIADMK leader took pride in calling himself a farmer, the lives of the royts have "taken a hit" only after he assumed power. Stalin alleged farmers would be driven out of their own lands and their lives shall go backward.
