Hisar, July 20

Farmers, who have been protesting in front of the Mini-Secretariat in Sirsa since July 17, have announced to block NH-9 from 9 am to 11 am tomorrow. They are demanding the release of five farmers held in a sedition case and the withdrawal of a case against 100 farmers, who have been framed in connection with an attack on the official vehicle of Deputy Speaker Ranbir Singh Gangwa during his Sirsa visit on July 11.

Administrative officials and representatives of the SKM met for the third consecutive day today, but the talks did not yield any result. The condition of SKM leader Baldev Singh Sirsa, who is on fast, deteriorated today and he was examined by a team of doctors at the dharna site. —TNS
