The protesting farmers, digging in their heels, have refused to attend the meeting called by the Haryana government about opening passage to the Delhi border. The highway (NH-44) has been blocked by farmers protesting against the centre's new farm laws at the Singhu and Tikri borders since November last year.

As per news report of NDTV, "All farmer leaders have decided that they will not be going to the meeting called by the Haryana government as the Supreme Court has ordered the state government on road blockage. We have already kept one side open," said Manjeet Singh, a farmer leader. The farmer leader has accused Delhi and its police of barricading the roads. Haryana home minister Anil Vij on Friday invited Samyukt Kisan Morcha - the umbrella body of around 40 farmers' unions which has been spearheading the protest - for a meeting with the state government's high-powered committee (HPC) at Murthal in Sonipat at 11 am on Sunday.
