Farmers' protest LIVE updates Day 21: Baba Ram Singh, a Sikh priest from Haryana, who had joined the farmers' protest, died by suicide Wednesday, media reports. Singh said in a note he was sacrificing his life "to express anger and pain against the government's injustice", NDTV reported. Singh, 65, shot himself, the police said.

The agitation of farmers against the three agricultural laws passed by the Centre has entered Day 21. Farmers have been staging a dharna on Delhi's borders in protest against the three agricultural laws brought in by the government. 
 
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on Wednesday indicated that it may form a committee having representatives of the government and farmer unions across the country to resolve the deadlock over farmers protesting at several roads near Delhi borders against the three new agri laws saying "it may become a issue".

The ongoing farmers' protest at Delhi borders is an "exception" and "limited to one state", Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said, and hoped for an early solution as the government is in talks with farmer unions.
