Farmers protest: Country-wide road blockade planned for Feb 6

Protesting farmers have called for a ‘chakka jam’ on February 6, between 12 noon to 3.00 pm, across India against three agri laws, arrests, internet suspension, sealing of roads and stoppage of water supply.

“There will be a country-wide agitation on February 6; we will block roads between 12 pm and 3 pm,” Balbir Singh Rajewal of Bhartiya Kisan Union (R) said on Monday, reported news agency ANI.

The farmer leaders also alleged that farmers have been “ignored” in the Union Budget 2021-22, and water and power supply have been curtailed at their protest venues.
