Rewari, December 31
A group of protesting farmers on Thursday removed police barricades at the Shahjahanpur-Khera Border in Rajasthan to move to Delhi but the police force intercepted them at next barricade.
Tension prevailed at the spot as the protesters wanted to go ahead but the police did not let them do so.
Rewari SP Abhishek Jorwal, along with heavy police force, is on the spot.
Farmers also removed the second barricades as well and moved towards Delhi in more than 10 tractor-trailers.
These protesters started from Shri Ganga Nagar and Hanuman Garh in Rajasthan.
“The police also used tear gas to stop the protestors but to no avail,” says Rakesh Arya, leader of All India Kisan Sabha. He added that the number of such farmers is more than 100.
Thousands of farmers are still staying put at the border and waiting for direction from the leadership of Sanyukt Kisan Morcha for further action.
