The farmers’ agitation against the Central government’s agricultural reforms has entered day 16. Farmer unions positioned at borders in the national capital have threatened to block railway tracks across the country if the reforms are not taken down. Unions also said that they would occupy toll plazas and block the Jaipur-Delhi Highway on Saturday and organise protests from December 14.

Union agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar once again appealed to the farmers to resume talks and said the government has no ego and will always be open for dialogue.
