Vehicular movement returned to normal on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway near Delhi after farmers carried out a five-hour peaceful blockade to mark the 100th day of protests against the three new farm laws on Saturday, 6 March.

As per IANS, farmers had squatted on the roads and blocked various toll plazas on the expressway from 11 am to 4 pm.

The farmers registered their protest by raising slogans and displaying black placards, while the tricolour fluttered atop tractors, and protest songs blared from speakers.
