More than 200 farmers' unions, including the Samyukta Kisan Morcha and the Kisan Mazdoor Morcha, have organised a ‘Delhi Chalo’ march to press the Centre to accept several demands. The farmers, who are set to hold a mega protest in the national capital on February 13, are on their way to Delhi from Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Punjab. Farmer leaders claim that more than two hundred organizations from nine states of the country will leave for Delhi on Tuesday on their appeal.
