Heavy security deployment continued at the Tikri border (Delhi-Haryana border) on Sunday morning as farmers’ protest against three agriculture laws enters the 74th day.

Police officers were seen standing in huge numbers near the barricades placed near the Tikri border a day after the “chakka jam” call given by the farmer unions who were protesting against the farm laws for over two months at the national capital’s border.

“The government should consider the fact that protesting farmers are dying and these laws should be repealed so that we can go back home. We have been protesting for nearly three months and till these laws are not withdrawn we’ll keep protesting here peacefully,” said Chanranjeet Singh, a farmer from Punjab.
