Farmers Vow Delhi-Jaipur Blockade Tomorrow, Ignore PM’s Appeal

Thousands of farmers from Rajasthan will take out a tractor rally to block the Delhi-Jaipur highway on Sunday, demonstrators protesting the centre’s new agricultural laws said on Saturday, vowing to intensify their agitation despite a fresh appeal from Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Protesters will also hold a nationwide demonstration at all district offices on Monday and hold a hunger strike from 8 am to 5 pm, they said. Thousands of policemen were stationed near Delhi’s borders to stop them from blocking major highways and taking over more roads into the capital. Defending the centre’s reforms again, PM Modi this morning said: “We’ve taking all these initiatives to increase the farmers’ income and make them more prosperous. Today, farmers of India can sell their produce both at the mandis, as well as outside.”
