- Protest against new agricultural laws
- Expressway closed for 24 hours
- Negotiations between government and farmer closed
The Farmers Protest on Saturday closed Eastern and Western Peripherals for 24 hours against the new farm laws, which caused a lot of problems for the passengers. On Saturday, farmers were seen protesting by placing a cot on the country’s fastest Eastern Peripheral Expressway. The farmers, who have been agitating against the agricultural laws for the last four months, stopped this expressway for 24 hours. The closure of the expressway brought thousands of passengers and truck wheels to a standstill. The farmers say that despite the farmers being on the road for four months, the government is not even talking.
Jagatar Bajwa, spokesman of the Kisan Sangharsh Samiti, said that people must be having problems, but think of the farmers, how much trouble they are having when they leave the fields and sit on the streets. Due to the harvesting of wheat and the panchayat elections, the number of farmers has decreased but still thousands of farmers are sitting on dharna at the Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur border. Due to the close of talks with the government, now the farmer leaders are preparing a framework to intensify this movement in May.

The farmers said that in May they will again reach Delhi in number of thousands, then the government will come to its senses. A section of the government is not in favor of talking to the farmers and what will be the future of the farmer movement, no one knows, but the farmer leaders definitely believe that this movement is in the dark cave, where at present there is no light. .
