Press Trust of India  |  Lucknow 

A farmers' body said today that its members would do 'asanas' on the streets in various cities on the occasion of the International Yoga Day as a form of protest.

Many of the protesting farmers may even be seen doing the 'sirsasana' or the head stand pose.

Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) spokesperson Rakesh Tikait said, "Our party office bearers along with farmers will be performing yoga on the streets in various cities across the state. This will be our way to lodge protest against the government's attitude towards farmers."

BKU general secretary Dharmendra Malik said that BKU supporters will be performing sirsasana.

"This will be done to extend our support to the farmers. Invitations have already been sent in this regard," Malik said.
