The farmers observed the day as the Sampoorna Kranti Diwas' as per their earlier plans.

Addressing the farmers' gathering, BKU district president Bijendra Singh said the Union government is underestimating farmers.

He said the farm laws for which farmers are protesting on the borders of the national capital have to be scrapped.
