Indian farmers clash with police over farm reforms

Delhi Chalo Protest LIVE: Heavy security deployed at Haryana-Delhi border ahead of farmers' rally Delhi Chalo protest: Massive traffic jams at Delhi borders choke key roads

As farmers fought their way through barricades and police forces on their way to Delhi for a planned protest march, their resourcefulness in crossing one such roadblock drew praise on Twitter.

Thousands of farmers from Punjab and Haryana are headed to Delhi as part of their protest march against Centre's farm laws.

A police officer said, "We are using tear gas to disperse protesting farmers".

The farmers raised slogans and pressed into the barricades but there were many obstructions.

"But the agitating farmers not only damaged the police barricades, but proceeded by removing all the blockades and obstructions in an unlawful manner".

Late last night, a large group of farmers in Haryana heading to Delhi through Sonepat faced a huge police barricade, where the road was blocked with large containers and trenches were dug up to prevent them crossing with their tractors.

Heading toward New Delhi, the farmers used tractors to clear walls of concrete, shipping containers and parked trucks set up by police on highways leading to the capital. No shipping containers can stop them.

Amid the farmers-police face-off over the "Delhi Chalo" protest over farm laws, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Friday said the voice of farmers can not be "muzzled" and asked the BJP-led Centre to hold talks immediately with peasants to defuse the situation.

Chandigarh Transport Undertaking too, meanwhile on Wednesday evening, suspended its bus services to Haryana for the next two days amid the farmers "Delhi Chalo" call. "The same information was shared by my counterparts also", he said. Strict action will be taken against such people as per law, he added. Yadava also urged the farmers to be vigilant against those who try to mislead them to grind their own axe. While the border has not been sealed but all vehicles entering the national capital are being checked by the police.

Traffic has been diverted at several places along the national capital's border in view of the protest.

The Haryana authorities have also imposed prohibitory orders under section 144 of the CrPC in several parts of the state to prevent assembly of protesters.

Party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, in a Hindi tweet, said,"Instead of listening to the voice of farmers protesting against the laws that snatch the minimum support price from them, the BJP government attacks them with water in this cold".

The farmers are demanding the repeal of the new farm laws which deregulate the sale of agriculture produce.
