The farmer leaders have called for a nationwide shutdown on Tuesday against the centre’s three new agricultural laws.

The farmers who are protesting on the outskirts of Delhi said they will block all roads to the national capital.

The farmers said they will also occupy all highway toll gates across the country and not allow the government to collect tolls as part of the December 8 strike.

“More people will join our movement,” ND TV quoted Harinder Singh Lakhowal, a leader of one of the protesting groups, as saying.

“If the government does not accept our demands in the meeting tomorrow, we will intensify our agitation against new farm laws,” said another leader Gurnam Singh Chadoni

The farmer leaders have vowed to renew demand for MSP guarantee, repealing of farm laws during the Saturday meeting scheduled with the government.
