Thousands of protesting farmers will take out a tractor rally to block the Delhi-Jaipur highway today to protest the centre’s new agricultural laws ignoring a fresh message from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the new legislations.
Protesters will also hold a nationwide demonstration at all district offices on Monday and hold a hunger strike from 8 am to 5 pm, they said.
Thousands of policemen were stationed near Delhi’s borders to stop them from blocking major highways and taking over more roads into the capital.
Defending the centre’s reforms again, PM Modi on Saturday morning said: “We’ve taking all these initiatives to increase the farmers’ income and make them more prosperous. Today, farmers of India can sell their produce both at the mandis, as well as outside.”
