The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (Non-Political) and Kisan Mazdoor Morcha (KMM), the leading farmer organizations driving the protest at the Shambu and Khanuari borders, stated that they would decide on the next course of action on February 29.

    Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) to observe ‘Quit WTO Day’ today during which they will place tractors on National-State Highways from 12 pm to 4 pm without disrupting traffic.
