Protesting Indian farmers trying to reach the capital New Delhi clashed with security forces for a second day on Wednesday, with drones being used to fire tear gas in televised images.

Hundreds of farmers traveling on trucks and trolleys loaded with food, bedding and other supplies started marching towards Delhi on Tuesday morning after no commitment was reached between their unions and the government regarding minimum prices for several crops. .

The protesters were stopped by security forces at the Shambhu border that divides Punjab and Haryana – the northern state where most of the protesters come from – about 200 km (125 miles) from their destination.

“We want the Prime Minister to come forward and talk to the farmers,” Punjab Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Samiti general secretary Sarwan Singh Pandher told Indian news agency ANI.
