Farmers protesting against the new Central agriculture laws deferred their proposed tractor march from January 6 to January 7 due to a bad weather forecast, even as they asserted they will intensify their stir in the coming days.

Sadiq said there are eight volunteers of the NGO, including pharmacists and technicians, who have come to the Singhu border from Punjab's Mohali district. Five of them sleep in the tent, while three have opted for a paying guest accommodation in a nearby area.
