    Thousands of farmers in Uttar Pradesh, India rallied in opposition to new agricultural laws on Friday, signaling growing support for a months-long campaign to have the government reforms scrapped.

    Angry at what they see as legislation that benefits private buyers at the expense of growers, tens of thousands of farmers have been camped on the outskirts of the capital, New Delhi for more than two months, calling for the withdrawal of laws introduced in September.

    Much of the initial support for the protests has come from rice and wheat growers from northern India. But in a sign of a growing challenge to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, more than 10,000 farmers rallied in Uttar Pradesh, India’s largest state and a critical battleground state in elections, to show their support for the protesting farmers.
