Jaipur, Feb 18 (PTI) A train was cancelled and a few others were delayed as farmers squatted on tracks as part of their agitation against the Centre’s farm laws in Rajasthan on Thursday.

The Rewari-Sri Ganganagar special train was cancelled due to the farmers’ 'rail roko' agitation, said chief spokesperson of the North-Western Railway, Gaurav Gaur. He, however, said the protest by farmers was largely symbolic and claimed that not much impact was seen in the areas under the North-Western Railway.

Farmers staged demonstrations on tracks at several places.

They stopped a train in Jaipur and climbed on its engine. When RPF personnel brought them down, they sat on tracks.

Looking at the agitation near Malakhera, a train was halted at the Rajgarh station by the railway authorities. PTI SDA RDK RDK
