The Aam Admi Party (AAP) has now started installing Wi-Fi hotspots at the Tikri border for protesting farmers, party leader Raghav Chadha said on Friday. This is the second spot after the Singhu border, where the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Admi Party has installed Wi-Fi. The AAP said Wi-Fi connections would help the protesting farmers to keep in touch with their families.

Chadha had said as and when demands come, they would install more such hotspots at other border points too where the farmers are protesting against the Centre’s three farm laws.
Meanwhile, the eighth round of talks between the center and farmer leaders protesting the agriculture laws was held on Friday but it failed to break a months-long deadlock between the parties, who remain divided on two key issues – the repeal of the laws and a legal guarantee for MSP.
