Farmers agitating against the centre's farm laws began a tractor march from Shahjahanpur on the Rajasthan-Haryana border Sunday morning, in efforts to block the Delhi-Jaipur highway and intensify protests that began in September, and have included previous attempts to occupy highways and last week's "Bharat bandh". A hunger strike and all-day protests outside district offices have been planned for Monday.

New Delhi, 13 December 2020

As per news report of NDTV, fierce opposition to laws farmers say endangers their livelihoods (the centre says the laws will reform the agriculture sector) have entered an 18th straight day. Talks with the centre have so far failed, with neither side willing to budge; the farmers, thousands of whom braved lathi charges and tear gassing to reach and remain camped around Delhi borders, want the laws scrapped, while the centre will only consider amendments.
