Farmers from Punjab protesting against Farmers’ Bill have finally been able to enter Haryana. They are now heading towards Ambala. Slogans of “Jo Bole So Nihaal” are resonate as Farmers make their way into Haryana.

The Farmers faced serious impediments in moving to Delhi as the Haryana Government had blocked the roads using trucks and had the Rapid Action force ready as well. When situations escalated, tear gas shells were used, ,which enraged the Farmers even more.

The Farmers aim to march to New Delhi to talk to the Central Government regarding the Farmers’ Bill – one that, they feel, is ‘anti-farmer’. Former BJP Cabinet Minister Harsimran Kaur Badal had resigned after the Bills were passed.
