The dhaba-cum-hotel-cum wedding venue is a favourite halt point for travellers, especially people coming from Delhi-NCR. Thousands of farmers had yesterday braved tear-gas shells, water cannons and police barricades to enter Haryana from Punjab. They had to face tear-gas shells and water cannons once again when they reached Delhi borders.
They were later allowed to enter the national capital and to stage a protest at Nirankari ground in Burari. Farmers are reaching Delhi to participate in "Dilli Chalo" stir to register their protest against the Centre's three farm-related laws.
