Farmers threaten to block Delhi-Jaipur highway, plan hunger strike on Dec 14

Amid the prevailing deadlock between farmers and the central government over the new farm laws, the agitation in and around Delhi entered its 18th day on Sunday, with the protesters threatening to block Delhi-Jaipur highway.

Meanwhile, at Singhu (Delhi-Haryana) border, security has been beefed up in view of the farmers' call to intensify the agitation. The city police had on Saturday increased security arrangements by deploying additional personnel and placing more concrete barriers.

"Thousands of farmers will begin a tractor march at 11 am on December 13 from Shahjahanpur in Rajasthan and block the Jaipur-Delhi main road," Sanyukta Kisan Andolan leader Kamal Preet Singh Pannu had said on Saturday.
