"We warn Modi and his government that AAP will not let that happen and today thousands of farmers are coming from all across the country to register their protest and to tell the government that if it doesn't stop the Bill from becoming law there would be an all India movement and they would teach the government a lesson," Ashutosh said.

The party said farmers from Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Punjab, Haryana, Odisha, Bundelkhand and Poorvanchal belt of Uttar Pradesh are participating in the rally to protest against the Bill.
