Farmers protest LIVE updates: Borders have been sealed ahead of the march.

New Delhi:

Protesting farmers today began their march towards Delhi after a meeting with two Union ministers over their demands, including a legal guarantee to MSP for crops, which remained inconclusive last night.

Authorities in Haryana have fortified the state’s borders with Punjab at many places in Ambala, Jind, Fatehabad, Kurukshetra and Sirsa using concrete blocks, iron nails and barbed wire to scuttle the proposed march.

The Haryana government has also imposed restrictions under Section 144 of the CrPC in as many as 15 districts, prohibiting the assembly of five or more people and banning any kind of demonstration or march with tractor trolleys.

Here are the LIVE updates from the Famers’ Protest:
