NEW YORK, DEC 11 (DNA) – Braving cold weather, hundreds of Sikhs staged a demonstration on Thursday — the U.N. Human Rights Day — near the Indian Consulate General in New York to protest new agricultural laws in India that they fear will adversely affect Punjabi farmers.

They raised vociferous anti-Modi and pro-Khalistan slogans as they pledged to continue their support to the protesting farmers in India. Protesters then drove in a cavalcade of cars to the Indian Consulate General, honking horns, waving anti-India signs and flying yellow flags.

A strong posse of police ringed the Indian Consulate General as part of the strict security measures. Reports of similar protest rallies have also come in from a number American cities. = DNA
