Carrying placards and hoardings, they also raised slogans in support of the farmers and their demands.
Congress has been demanding the repeal of the three farm laws, which the farmers are against alleging that these legislations will end the mandi and MSP procurement systems and leave them at the mercy of big corporates.
The government has rejected these apprehensions as misplaced.
