Farmers from different parts of the country have been protesting in Delhi against the farm bills since November 27.

The farmers’ body said 250 farmers’ organizations marched towards Delhi in protest against the farm bills and they were inhumanely obstructed by the police on the outskirts of Delhi by digging trenches on roads, dumping heaps of earth on the way and spraying water cannons on them.

Earlier, the Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) and its students’ wing Chatra Mukti Sangram Samiti (SMSS) staged a demonstration against the farm bills at Narayanpur in Lakhimpur district on Wednesday.
