Farmers blocked traffic on the Delhi-Chandigarh highway (National Highway 44) on Monday after holding a mahapanchayat at Pipli grain market in Kurukshetra district to press for minimum support price (MSP) for sunflower seeds.

Farmer leaders, including Rakesh Tikait and Balbir Singh Rajewal, announced from the stage that they will support whatever decision is taken by the local farmers. After repeated meetings with the district administration failed to yield results, farmer leaders gave a call to block the NH 44. Thousands of farmers on their tractor-trailers reached the highway and blocked the traffic movement by parking their vehicles. (HT Photo)
