Lakhs of farmers were supposed to reach the capital on 26 and 27 November as a part of “Delhi Chalo,” a protest rally against three new farm laws. But they were stopped by security forces who responded to the march by barricading Delhi’s borders, shelling teargas and firing water cannons. Since then, the farmers have been at different sit-ins on the Delhi-Haryana border, including at Singhu. In early December, farmers reiterated their stance: they will not go back till the laws are repealed.
