Popular actor-filmmaker R Narayanamurthy has been arrested in Hyderabad following his protest against the union government’s controversial farm laws. The firebrand actor participated in the Chalo Rajbhavan protest march organized by Telangana farmers against the ruling BJP government’s alleged anti-farmers laws.
Interacting with the media after his arrest, he stated that the central government’s new farm laws are similar to the laws implemented by the Bihar government in 2006 that turned farmers into daily wage labourers. Foreseeing a similar fate, R Narayanamurthy demanded the BJP government to repeal its new farm laws at the earliest.
R Narayanamurthy directed and produced several movies based on farmers issues in the past.
