Kisan Kranti Padyatra: Akhilesh Yadav supports agitating farmers

Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav, expressed solidarity with the protesting farmers. "This Govt has not fulfilled the promises it made to farmers, so it is all but natural that farmers would protest. It is unfortunate and we fully support the farmers", he said. Earlier, thousands of farmers, marching as part of the 'Kisan Kranti Padyatra', were stopped at the Delhi-UP border with the police using water cannons and tear gas shells to disperse them.
