NEW DELHI, Nov 30 - Thousands of farmers marched through the streets of the National Capital, chanting slogans and flashing flags, to press their demands like debt relief and remunerative prices for their produce and were joined by social activists and leaders of non-BJP parties in a show of strength near Parliament here.
The farmers, who had gathered from various States and camped at the Ramlila ground overnight, started their march around 10.30 am amid heavy policy deployment, only to be stopped at the Parliament Street Police Station.
The government came in for severe criticism for �not implementing a single major initiative for farmers in the past four and a half years�.
National secretary of All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) Asish Mittal said farmers from 24 States joined the protest. � PTI
