Farmers, continuing their protest on the borders of punjab and Haryana, faced challenges in their attempt to resume the delhi Chalo march on february 21, 2024. The march resulted in a clash at the Khanauri border, leading to one protester's death and injuries to about 12 policemen. In response to the incident, farmer leaders decided to postpone the delhi Chalo march by two days.

The deceased protester was identified as Shubhakaran Singh (21) from Baloke village in bathinda district, Punjab. The clash involved farmers attacking police with sticks, and stones were thrown, resulting in injuries to around a dozen police officers. The injured were taken to a hospital, with one protester succumbing to head injuries.

Following the failed fourth round of talks with three Union Ministers, the farmers sought to enter delhi once again, prompting the clash at the border. Farmer leader Sarwan Singh Pandher stated that discussions on the Khanauri incident would take place, and a decision on the further strategy would be made on friday evening, february 23, 2024.

Agriculture minister Arjun Munda extended an invitation for the fifth round of talks, addressing all issues, including Minimum Support Price (MSP). Munda expressed the government's readiness to engage in dialogue and find solutions to the ongoing concerns raised by the protesting farmers.
