Samyukta Kisan Morcha Meeting: The farmers' agitation against the Centre's agricultural laws at various borders of Delhi continues for the 77th day. 11 round of meetings between the farmers and the government have been held so far but no solution has come out.
Looking at the attitude of the government, the farmers are now going to intensify the agitation. Samyukta Kisan Morcha will hold a meeting at 2 pm today.
According to the reports, further strategy would be worked out in the meeting of the Kisan Morcha today. Leaders of various farmers' organizations are expected to attend the meeting. Whatever decisions are taken during this meet, will be shared with the agitating farmers. The number of farmers are increasing at many borders.
