In a dramatic turn of events at the Khanuri border, around two dozen farmers, led by Baldev Singh Sirsa, were injured in a clash with Haryana Police and Central Security Forces. The operation involved the use of tear gas shells, rubber bullets, and water cannons, leaving farmers hospitalized in Pathar and nearby medical facilities. Rejecting the central government’s proposal, the non-political Union Farmers’ Front has declared a march to Delhi, drawing thousands of farmers to the Punjab-Haryana border.
