New Delhi : An FIR has been lodged against the farmers sitting at Delhi's Singhu border red light. The Delhi Police has filed a complaint against the agitators for not following the social distancing under Pandemic Act and other sections.

On November 29, the protesting farmers had forcibly entered the Delhi border from Lampur road and since then they have been obstructing the traffic movement.

The farmers have been sitting on the different border areas of the national capital for the past two weeks, demanding the repeal of the new farm laws. The farmers have now threatened to block the Indian Railways routes if their demands are not met in time.

"We will block railway tracks if our demands are not met. We will decide on the date and announce it soon. The blocking of tracks will not be limited to Haryana and Punjab but it will be done across the country," farmer leader Boota Singh said at the press conference.

The warning comes at a time when the Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that there is no point of doing agitation when talks are underway.

The Union Agriculture Minister also urged farmer union leaders to consider proposals sent to them to break the deadlock over protests and said the government is ready for further discussions with them any time.
