As part of the agitation, the protesting farmers have decided to free all road toll plazas in Rajasthan starting February 12.
On February 14, a candle march and ‘mashaal juloos’ will be held across the country to honour the sacrifice of soldiers martyred in the Pulwama attack, the Samyukta Kisan Morcha said in a press release.
