The protesters condemned the new agricultural laws and shouted “JP Nadda murdabad, BJP murdabad” (below with JP Nadda, below with BJP). The agitators did not carry the flags of any political party.

Nadda arrived in the city around 1 pm when her plane from Delhi took off late due to a delay in flight operations.
