Rahul Gandhi briefly stopped on Haryana border

New Delhi, Oct 6 (UNI) Congress leader Rahul Gandhi who is protesting against recently passed farm laws, briefly stopped near Punjab-Haryana border on Tuesday when he tried to enter the state along with hundreds of supporters, but was later allowed following an altercation between party workers and policemen.
Mr Gandhi, shared a video on twitter, saying “They have stopped us on a bridge on the Haryana border. I’m not moving and am happy to wait here. 1 hour, 5 hours, 24 hours, 100 hours, 1000 hours or 5000 hours”.

The video showed a large gathering of people sloganeering in the favour of Congress leader.

Mr Gandhi is currently leading a Tractor rally throughout the Punjab and Haryana. The rally began on Sunday from Punjab’s Moga district and plans to end in Haryana’s Kurukshetra.

The Haryana Police was seen standing behind the barricades at the border as the protesting rally moved towards the state.

Haryana government also stated that only up to 100 people will be allowed to enter the state border.

On Monday, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had said, “If he comes with a procession from Punjab, that will not be allowed. He can rally with the people here.”

Earlier in Patiala, during a press conference, the former Congress chief was flanked by Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, who informed the media that his government will soon bring a special session to scuttle these legislations of the Centre, which were crafted to destroy not just the farmers but the entire agricultural system, and the state.
