Hisar, October 23

A group of farmers tried to gherao Haryana Agriculture Minister JP Dalal during his visit to Bhiwani town today.

Police force halted the march of the protesters from going towards the rest house. The farmers, however, waved black flags and raised anti-government slogans.

Farmer leader Balbir Singh Bajad said that farmers have been protesting for the past 11 months. But instead of accepting their demands, the government is trying to crush the agitation by using dictatorial tactics, he alleged.

The farmer leader alleged that the anti-farmer attitude of the government stands exposed as the farmers are not able to sow rabi crops due to shortage of DAP. Besides, there are many areas which are still inundated with rainwater.
