Hisar, September 10

Members of the arhtiya association and farmer activists were stopped by the police from going to Pipli at various places in Hisar, Sirsa, Jind and Bhiwani districts today.

In Hisar's Uklana town, Uklana Arhtiyas Association president Dhoop Singh Botham was taken into custody by the police. The police also stopped arhtiyas in Kalanwali town in Sirsa district as the DSP had put up a 'naka' to block the cavalcade of arhtiyas.

Krishan Kirmara, a farmer leader in Hisar, said that they were stopped near the toll plaza at Barwala town of Hisar district. The protesters from across the state were stopped by the police due to the Covid pandemic.

The Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) had announced to hold a state-level rally at Pipli near Kurukshetra today to protest the ordinances of the Centre.

Various farmer organisations and arhtiyas associations extended support to the rally to protest the ordinances which allow private players to purchase agricultural produce.
