West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday threatened to launch a country-wide agitation if the “anti-farmer” new farm laws weren't withdrawn.The Trinamool Congress supremo lashed out at the BJP- led government at the Centre over the difficulty during a series of tweets.

“I am considerably concerned about the farmers, their lives and livelihood. GOI must withdraw the anti-farmer bills. If they are doing not do so immediately, we'll agitate throughout the state and therefore the country. From the very start, we've been strongly opposing these anti-farmer bills,” she tweeted.

Her statement came before an important round of talks scheduled to be held between the Centre and representatives of the agitating farmers during the day.

“We have called a gathering of the All India Trinamool Congress on Friday, December 4. we'll discuss how the Essential Commodities Act is impacting folk and leading to sky rocketing prices. The central government must withdraw this anti-people law,” she said in another Twitter post.
