these farmers faced multiple flashpoints with the police in riot gear using tear gas, water cannon, barricades and barbed wires upon entering Delhi from adjoining states like Haryana . agitators insisted that the three laws cleared by the Parliament will reduce their earnings in the market and give more power to corporats.
Representing more than 30 farm bodies, these farmers will be escorted to a protest site in New Delhi on Saturday for carrying out a peaceful demonstration.The protesting farmers – gathered at Delhi’s Tikri border — proceeded in trucks to Burari on late Friday after they were allowed to stage demonstrations at the Sant Nirankari Ground as they demanded an open site for carrying out their protest.
