Punjab: Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi cancelled his visit to Ferozpur in Punjab after farmers blocked three approach roads to the rally where Modi was supposed to speak, reports said on Wednesday.

This was Modi’s first visit to the state after the repeal of the contentious three farm laws. The committee members had given a call to disrupt the Prime Minister’s rally as the GoI is silent on the minimum support price (MSP) issue. As per reports, the protesting farmers belong to the Kisan Mazdoor Sangarsh Committee (KMSC).
