A group of farmers' organizations have called for protests to be held across Haryana state on Sunday, September 20. The purpose of the protests is to denounce three controversial agricultural ordinances introduced in June and to demand other concessions. Farmers plan to block roads in the state between 12:00 and 15:00 (local time) and hold demonstrations in major urban centers. Traffic disruption is expected in the vicinity of the protests, especially in areas where roadblocks are erected.
A heightened security presence is also likely in the vicinity of the demonstrations, and clashes between security forces and protesters cannot be ruled out.
Those in Haryana state are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, avoid all demonstrations and large gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
