A day after defying police barricades, water cannon and tear gas, thousands of farmers resumed their 'Delhi Chalo' advance Friday against the recently-passed farm bills by the Central government. The farmers met with tear gas shells and heavy barricading at the Haryana-Delhi approach Day 2 of their march.

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha and every one India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee are leading the protests and have stated that the farmers won't return until the controversial farm laws are repealed.

In a statement, the 2 farmers' bodies said, "It is predicted that quite 50,000 farmers are going to be standing at the Delhi border by today evening. The numbers are expected to swell through the night as thousands of tractors and trolleys are carrying farmers, women and youngsters from interior areas of Punjab."

The farmers, mostly hailing from Punjab and Haryana, have moved closer to Delhi prompting the police to strengthen security at the border. Heavy deployment of Delhi Police and CRPF personnel were seen at the Singhu border along side sand-laden trucks, water cannons and wire to stop protesters from entering the capital .The agitating farmers are marching towards Delhi against the controversial farm laws which they believe will reduce their earnings and make big retailers more powerful.
