CHANDIGARH — Intensifying their protest against the three contentious farm laws, farmers on Friday took over toll plazas across Haryana for three days, reports IANS.

Farmers took over the Bastara toll plaza on national highway 44 and Peont toll plaza on Karnal-Jind national highway 709A.

On the call of farmers’ union, BKU activists occupied the Panipat toll plaza on NH44 and the Dahar toll plaza. Farmers, led by BKU district president Kuldeep Balana, reached at Dahar toll plaza on NH 71 A on the Panipat Rohtak highway, in the morning and staged a protest there.

Farmers staged a dharna and allowed vehicles to pass through without paying the toll.

In the neighbouring Punjab, the toll plazas have been made free by the protesting farmers for quite some time.

Likewise, they allowed vehicles to pass through the Shambhu toll plaza and the Chaudhary toll plaza on the Hisar-Rajgarh highway.

Meanwhile, according to reports, Bhartiya Kisan Union (Charuni) chief Gurnam Singh Charuni rejected the offer of Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala to mediate between the Centre and the protesting farmers. He said that they don’t need any mediator.
