On Thursday, the agitating farmers reached the Jantar Mantar with eleborate arrangements. A farmer leader told IANS that over one lakh farmers are ready to reach Jantar Mantar, but the police have allowed only 200 people per day.

“We have selected a maximum of three persons from each farmer union. This time we are prepared to avoid any untoward incidents, like what happened on January 26. All the farmers will come to the protest site only in buses, and no personal vehicle is allowed. Moreover, all those attending the Kisan Sansad will have identity cards issued by the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM),” said a protesting farmer.
