Earlier, the farmer groups, including women, continued their march towards Delhi while protesting and raising slogans near the border areas of the national capital. Scores of farmers at the Tikri border near the Delhi-Bahadurgarh highway and the Singhu border were seen agitating amid heavy security deployment.
