India woke up on Friday with farmers up in arms across the nation against the contentious agri Bills passed in the monsoon session of Parliament.
While Punjab and Haryana took the lead, no other state could match their spirit. In fact, in Karnataka farmers protests elicited lukewarm responses. In Delhi and western Uttar Pradesh, police and paramilitary forces were ready to deal with any eventuality at the borders.
However, so far it has been peaceful.
