Local farmers in Punjab's Bathinda district had earlier expressed their dissatisfaction over the Bhagwant Mann-led government's failure to find an alternative to the stubble-burning problem.
The decision came after Punjab Agriculture Minister Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal said his government has withdrawn the letter of open auction of the Phagwara sugar mill property.
Roads leading to Hoshiarpur, Nawanshahr and Nakodar were also blocked by parking tractors, leading to traffic snarls.
Punjab farmers growing ‘moong’ (green gram) this year stand shortchanged.
The development came after representatives of more than 20 farmer bodies held a marathon meeting with Mann at Punjab Bhawan here.
A farmer leader said they do not want any confrontation with the state government, but they will have to break the barriers and move towards Chandigarh if their issues were not resolved.
Before that meeting farmers leaders will be going to Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh on May 4 to get justice for families of 'martyred' farmers.
The farmers, who were protesting under the banner of the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee, scuffled with police as they tried to break the barricades to reach Harbhajan Singh's house.
