In Pics | Farmers Resume 'Delhi Chalo' March Amid Massive Barricading

Protesting farmers resumed their 'Delhi Chalo' march on Wednesday after a two-day pause during which they held talks with the government and rejected its proposal, saying it was not in favour of the farmers. Elaborate security arrangements and a massive deployment of security personnel continue to remain at the Shambhu border between Punjab and Haryana where the farmers have been camping in a bid to march to Delhi.

Security men stand next to barricades as Indian farmers who have been protesting for a week to demand guaranteed crop prices wait to march to the capital near Shambhu border that divides northern Punjab and Haryana states, some 200 kilometers (120 miles) from New Delhi. The protesting farmers began their march last week, but their efforts to reach the city have been blocked by authorities.
