Farmers to block more highways today as govt says stir being taken over by 'anti-national' elements

Protesting farmers have threatened to escalate their stir today and are likely to block more highways around Delhi. This comes after the government on Friday asked farmers to be vigilant against their platform being hijacked by "anti-social" as well as "Leftist and Maoist" elements. Photographs of some protesters at the Tikri border seen holding posters demanding release of activists arrested under various charges had gone viral, prompting Tomar to say that these "anti-social elements" are conspiring to spoil the atmosphere of the peasants' movement under the guise of farmers.
