Opposition MPs at Ghazipur border

A delegation of around 15 MPs from nearly 10 opposition parties who were on their way to meet protesting farmers at Ghazipur border near Delhi on Thursday were stopped by the police from proceeding.

NCP MP Supriya Sule, SAD MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal and DMK MP Kanimozhi were among those who were part of the delegation.

"We are on the way to meet farmers. We all support farmers, we request the government to hold talks with farmers and justice is done to them," Sule said on her way to the protest site.

"We are here so that we can discuss this issue (farmers' protest) in Parliament, Speaker is not letting us raise the issue. Now all the parties will give details of what is happening here," Harsimrat Kaur said.

They were, however, stopped from going to the protest site and were turned back by the Delhi Police.
