Mumbai: During a press conference on Wednesday, farmers’ leaders announced that they will block Delhi-Jaipur and Delhi-Agra highways on December 12. They also called for a nationwide protest on December 14.

After studying the new draft proposal sent to them earlier in the day by the central government, farmer leaders said they were rejecting the proposals, but the door was kept open for further talks if the government sent another proposal.
