Farmers continue protest against farm laws as 5th round of talks ends in deadlock; security enhanced

Thousands of farmers protesting against the Centre's new farm laws stayed put on the borders of Delhi with Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, as their fifth round of talks with the government ended in a deadlock. The protests led to the blockade of key routes leading to Delhi, which resulted in long traffic jams. Meanwhile, the government has proposed another meeting on December 9 with the representatives of protesting farmers and requested them to send back the elderly, women and children to their homes from the protest sites. The agitating farmers had on Friday announced a 'Bharat bandh' on December 8 and threatened to intensify their agitation and block more roads leading to the national capital if the government did not accept their demands.
