Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh urges the Centre to immediately initiate talks with Kisan Unions to defuse the tense situation at the Delhi borders.

Farmers faced a lathi-charge and tear gas early this morning at the Haryana-Delhi border and clashed with the police as they continued their march towards Delhi for a massive protest against new farm laws.
