Police use tear gas shells to disperse farmers at Haryana-Delhi border

A day after defying police barricades, water cannon and tear gas, thousands of farmers resumed their 'Delhi Chalo' march on Friday against the recently-passed farm bills by the Central government. The farmers met with tear gas shells and heavy barricading at the Haryana-Delhi border on Day 2 of their march. The Samyukt Kisan Morcha and All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee are leading the protests and have stated that the farmers won't return until the controversial farm laws are repealed. In a statement, the two farmers' bodies said, "It is expected that more than 50,000 farmers will be standing at the Delhi border by today evening. The numbers are expected to swell through the night as thousands of tractors and trolleys are carrying farmers, women and children from interior areas of Punjab."
