Pakistan-based ISI proxies may sabotage the protest by farmers on June 26, says ANI quoting unnamed official sources.

Delhi police, Central Industrial Security Force and other concerned agencies have been apprised of the development.

Farmer groups have been camping at Delhi’s borders since November last year demanding rollback of farm laws and that a new law be made to guarantee minimum support price for crops.

Three Metro Stations to remain shut till 2 pm

Security at the Metro stations in Delhi has been beefed up. As a precautionary measure, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has decided to keep three Metro stations--Vishwavidyalaya, Civil Lines and Vidhan Sabha shut from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday.

The step has been taken on the advice of Delhi police which has also made elaborate security arrangements.

Farmers at the Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur border points are gearing up to observe ‘Save Agriculture, Save Democracy Day’ on Saturday. Several farmer groups are also expected to join the protesting farmers at Delhi's border points.

Farmers across states plan to hand over a memorandum to various state governors demanding the repeal of the three farm laws on Saturday, said Bharatiya Kisan Union’s all-India president Naresh Tikait. The memorandums to be forwarded to President Ram Nath Kovind would be given to mark the completion of seven months of farmers’ agitation against the three central legislation, Tikait said on Friday.
