Farmers' protest LIVE updates Day 35: The Haryana Police on Thursday used a water cannon and tear gas as farmers on tractor-trailers broke through barricades at the Shahjahanpur border with Rajasthan, trying to push towards the capital. While farmers on around 25 tractor-trailers pushed past the Haryana Police barriers, others stayed behind on the Rajasthan side of the Shahjahanpur-Rewari border, police said.

In an unprecedented move, BJP's lone member in the Kerala Assembly, O Rajagopal, today, supported the resolution seeking scrapping of the three contentious farm laws against which farmers have been agitating for over a month at the Delhi border. 
 
The sixth round of meetings between protesting farmers and the government ended on Wednesday with the Centre saying that the two sides had reached consensus on two out of four key issues. The next meeting will take place on January 4.

Addressing media persons after the meeting with 41 farmer leaders at Vigyan Bhavan, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said: "Today's talks were held in a very good environment and concluded on a positive note. We have had consensus on two out of the four issues."

The next meeting of government with farmers will take place on January 4.

Thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh have been protesting at several borders of the capital demanding the repeal of the three farm laws, among other demands.
