(Warna 2019 mein ye kisaan qayamat dha denge.) According to the reports, over 3,500 police personnel have been deployed to ensure the security of the farmers in Delhi.

Banded under the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee, which claims to be an umbrella body of 207 organisations of farmers and agricultural workers, many farmers arrived in the city on trains, buses and other modes of transport.

Five Gurdwaras in the Delhi region have extended their help to the farmers.

They came from various States, including Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh.

The protest also saw participation of a number of women farmers who travelled from various parts of the country.

Banded under the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC), which claims to be an umbrella body of 207 organisations of farmers and agricultural workers, numerous farmers came in trains and other packed into buses and other modes of transport. Kamla, a functionary of the All India Kisan Sabha's Delhi unit, said farmers from nearby areas converged at Majnu Ka Tila on the outskirts of Delhi from where they marched in groups to Ramlila Maidan.

Apart from farmers and agricultural labourers, organisers hope to draw in several thousand students, artists and middle-class urban professionals under the banner of a fledgling forum called "Nation for Farmers".

Rahul Gandhi promises to cancel farmers' loans

The protest is one of the biggest displays of frustration with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government, which faces a tough general election due by May next year.

Some farmers have been raising slogans, saying, 'We don't want Ayodhya's Ram Temple, we want debt waiver'. "I have been waiting since a year but the sugarcane mill has not yet deposited money into my account", said Nimtal Singh, a farmer who had come from Jaipur. Farmers have converged in Delhi to remind the Union government that the party leading it had made promises of waiving off loans in its manifesto.

Lawyer Prashant Bhushan also tweeted in solidarity with farmers."Over 3L farmers have committed suicide in India in last 15 yrs, due to successive govts betraying them".

On Thursday night, farmers, both men and women, from all parts of India tried to sleep in a chilly night inside tents, while many sat huddled together, discussing the next strategy and family issues.

"We have always been there to support your protests earlier and will continue to do so", he said, adding that farmers should not be undermined and they have the power to "topple the government".

In August, Swabhimani Paksha MP Raju Shetti and CPM MP K K Ragesh had introduced private member's bills in Parliament seeking legislations on farmers' right to guaranteed remunerative minimum support prices for all crops and relief from indebtedness. The group from Tamil Nadu threatened to march naked if they are not allowed to go to Parliament on Friday.

Delhi traffic police has issued an advisory.
