Farm law protests highlights: Govt cannot stop anyone from entering Delhi, says Punjab CM
- Haryana put up road barricades at its border with Punjab
- Farmers gathered with their tractor-trailers a day ahead of a planned 'Delhi Chalo' march
- The BJP government in Haryana has said it will seal its borders with Congress-run Punjab for the next two days
Farmers from across the country are marching towards Delhi to protest against the recently passed farm laws. Several trade unions have also called for a nationwide strike on Thursday. The 24-hour bandh called by a joint committee of the central trade unions began at 6 am. The trade unions are protesting against the Centre's economic policies. The Haryana Police on Thursday used water cannons and tear gas to disperse a group of farmers from Punjab who allegedly tried to jump police barricades to enter Haryana as part of their 'Delhi Chalo' march against the Centre's new farm laws. The Haryana Police officials at the Shambhu inter-state border with Punjab used loud speakers, asking farmers who had assembled on the Punjab side to disperse when some of them tried to cross and remove the barricades.
