Ongoing Protests Around The World Including India Amid Pandemic
The worst situation is in the European country Belarus where people are on the streets in anti-government demonstrations in all cities including the capital Minsk. The protests are led by 37-year-old Svetlana Tikhanovsna, the main opposition leader who has accused President Lukashenko, who has been ruling Belarus for 26 years, of vote-rigging. After the exit poll results were released on Sunday, thousands of people gathered in the capital Minsk to demand a fresh presidential election. According to CNN, around 50,000 people gathered on Sunday to protest against President Lukashenko.
Apart from this, on 15 August, against the agrarian policies of the government, the farmers landed in Punjab and Haryana and tried to spread their voice to the government.
