Muzaffarnagar (UP), Nov 28 (PTI) More than a hundred farmers staged a protest against the Centre”s recently enacted new farm laws by blocking the Panipat-Khatima highway near Talda village in Muzaffarnagar district on Saturday, police said.

The farmers were demonstrating in solidarity with their counterparts from Punjab who have taken out a “Delhi Chalo” march to voice their opposition to the new agriculture legislation.

In a similar dharna, activists of the Bhartiya Kisan Sena protested at Chapar village and gave a memorandum to officials against the new legislations demanding the law be repealed as it is “anti-farmers”.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) activists led by national spokesperson Rakesh Tikait reached the UP Gate bordering Delhi to stage protests in the national capital. PTI CORR HDA
