Farmers are protesting the three farm laws and have started the ‘Dilli Chalo’ protest from November 26 and 27. More than three lakh farmers, including over two lakh protesters from Punjab alone, have reached Delhi border. The governments in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand have adopted severe repressive measures to restrain them. They have not only used water cannons and tear gas shells but also arrested more than 100 local farmer leaders. Several others were detained to prevent their movement through states.
