armer leaders on Monday started their day-long hunger strike against the Centre’s new farm laws and said protests would be held at all district headquarters later in the day, even as more people are expected to join ongoing agitation at Delhi border points.

Farmer leader Baldev Singh said, “Representatives of farmer unions have started their hunger strike at Singhu border.”

On Sunday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said he would also observe a day-long fast on Monday and appealed to the central government to shun ego and scrap the legislations.
