NEW DELHI: Delhi Police have made elaborate security arrangements as farmers decided to camp at the Singhu border (Delhi-Haryana) to protest against the central farm laws.
Security has been tightened and barricading was done at Ghazipur-Ghaziabad (Delhi-UP) border where farmers have gathered in protest farm laws. Farmers have been protesting at various places in Delhi and Haryana and have rejected the central government`s offer to hold talks on December 3 saying that imposing conditions for starting a dialogue is an insult to them.
