Farmer protests swell in Haryana, west UP stir reaches Delhi borders
Gurgaon/Noida: Responding to the nationwide bandh called by the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) against the contentious farm bills passed last week, large groups of farmers and commission agents flooded the streets in Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, blocking highways and the rail routes around the capital, and disrupting traffic till late afternoon.

In Haryana, where the demonstrations swelled on Friday, thousands of farmers and over 30 farmers’ bodies agitated against the ‘anti-farmer’ policies adopted by the Centre from 10 am. While the protests were peaceful in parts, effigies of senior BJP leaders and copies of the farm bills were burnt in some areas, and scathing slogans were raised against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
