Farmers protest Rights and Issues Feb 13 2024
Farmers affiliated with the Kisan Mazdoor Morcha (KMM) and the non-political Samyukta Kisan Morcha are set to embark on a journey from various regions of Punjab.

This comes even as security has been tightened in Punjab, Haryana, and Delhi borders ahead of the farmers' 'Chalo Delhi' protest on February 13.

The Union ministers Piyush Goyal, Arjun Munda, and Nityanand Rai will meet the farmer leaders in Chandigarh on February 12 to hold talks with a delegation of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (Non-Political) and the Kisan Mazdoor Morcha.
