Farmers Protest To Delhi LIVE Updates - Punjab, Haryana Chief Ministers Spar Over Farmers' Protest

Farmers Protest To Delhi: Massive security arrangements have been made at the borders with Delhi.

New Delhi:

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and his Haryana counterpart Manohar Lal Khattar on Thursday engaged in a Twitter fight over farmers' "Delhi Chalo" march against the Centre's farm laws.

While Mr Singh slammed Mr Khattar for stopping farmers from moving towards the national capital, terming it as "totally undemocratic and unconstitutional", the latter told the Punjab chief minister to stop "inciting innocent farmers".

Mr Singh took to Twitter for lashing out at his counterpart in Haryana after farmers were stopped from entering the state to move towards Delhi.

After a two-hour clash on a narrow bridge near the border between Congress-ruled Punjab and Haryana, which saw thousands of farmers flung barricades into a river and throw bricks at cops and physically push vehicles, farmers managed to enter Haryana as they continued their ''Delhi Chalo'' march against the Centre's new farm laws.

Haryana, ruled by the BJP, has been using heavy force to try and block farmers from Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Kerala and Punjab making their way from Punjab towards Delhi in tractors and on foot for their two-day "Delhi Chalo" protest march against new farm laws that they fear will reduce their earnings and give more power to large retailers.

Delhi's borders at Gurugram and Faridabad have been sealed and metro services have been affected.

Here are the live updates of farmers' protest march to Delhi:
