Haryana Police Use Water Cannons, Tear Gas To Disperse Farmers
Farmers from Punjab faced water cannons and broke police barriers at the state’s border with Haryana as they pushed towards the national capital Thursday in their “Delhi Chalo” march against the Centre’s farm laws. At the Shambhu border, the Haryana Police and Punjab protesters in their tractor-trolleys faced each other off on a bridge over the Ghaggar River…. As smoke from teargas shells clouded the air and security personnel milled around, people could be seen standing on top of trucks…. The farmers are demanding the repeal of the new farm laws which deregulate the sale of agriculture produce. They say the laws will lead to the dismantling of the minimum support price (MSP) system.
