New Delhi: Farmers have started reaching the Jantar Mantar in the national capital on Monday for their ‘mahapanchayat’ amid massive traffic jams at Delhi’s borders, especially in Ghazipur where the police have put up barricades.

The gathering has been called by the Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) and various other farmer groups.

The farmers from Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab and many other states are likely to give a memorandum to the President pressing for their demands related to unemployment, inflation and other issues.

The Delhi Police have beefed up security at the Singhu and Ghazipur borders and also made elaborate security arrangements to avoid any untoward incident.
