In Cold Wave, Water Cannons Used On Farmers Headed To Delhi

Protesting farmers in BJP-ruled Haryana had a tough time marching towards Delhi today as the state police set up barricades and deployed water cannons across the state. After crossing the barricades at Ambala, hundreds of farmers faced water cannons at Kurukshetra. Dramatic visuals from the spot showed massive jets of water being fired at a huge crowd on the highway barricaded by the police. People, thoroughly drenched in the cold winter evening, ran helter-skelter. Still, the farmers managed to breach the barricade. They are now marching through Kurukshetra on way to Karnal. A section of farmers are already marching towards Sonipat, where they will stay overnight and leave for Delhi tomorrow morning.
