Delhi Cold Intensifies But Protesting Farmers Undeterred

Thousands of farmers protesting at Delhi borders  against the Centers’ new agri laws remained firm in their demands of repealing the legislations, even as the city recorded its coldest morning this season, with the mercury dipping to 3.4°C on Sunday. According to the India Meteorological Department, a cold wave swept Delhi  on Sunday. The Safdarjung Observatory, which provides representative data for the city, recorded a minimum of 3.4°C, five notches below the normal, on Sunday morning, an IMD official said. The maximum temperature is likely to settle around 22°C, the official said. The farmers’ agitation, which has entered its fourth week, has also led to traffic diversions at various border points causing inconvenience to commuters. Thousands of farmers, especially from Punjab and Haryana, have been camping at various borders of Delhi for almost four weeks now as formal talks between the government and representatives of farmers’ unions remained deadlocked with protesting peasants refusing to accept anything less than a repeal of the three newly enacted laws.
