Delhi: Modified tractors, carrying rations, woollens, essential items and people, trundled through Haryana in the chilly winter evening as thousands of Punjab farmers protesting against the Centre’s new farm laws, slowly moved closer to Delhi, undeterred by police barricades, tear gas and water cannons.

“More than 50,000 farmers will be standing at the Delhi border by today evening,” two farmers’ bodies claimed.

The day has been replete with clashes — on one occasion the protesters even pitched the yellow iron barricades into the river below while trying to cross a narrow bridge.

Leaders in Punjab and Haryana, meanwhile, carried on a political tussle, with the BJP accusing the Congress of brainwashing farmers for its own interests and the Congress hitting back with sharp questions.
