NEW DELHI: Drone cameras were deployed at Tikri border on Saturday to monitor the law and order situation in the wake of 'chakka jam' call by the farmer unions who were protesting against the farm laws for over two months at the national capital's border.

Farmers on Monday announced a countrywide 'chakka jam' on February 6. Due to that heavy police personnel deployed across Delhi-NCR including Shahjahanpur (Delhi-Rajasthan) border.
