Farmers are determined to continue their agitation for higher crop prices at the two interstate border points after February 29, when further actions will be decided, stated Sarwan Singh Pandher, their leader. The decision to maintain camps at the protest sites of Shambhu and Khanauri was made by the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (Non-Political) and Kisan Mazdoor Morcha (KMM), the leading organizers of the ongoing protest.

Last week, thousands of farmers initiated a ‘Delhi Chalo’ march but were halted by security forces approximately 200 km north of the capital.
