'Delhi Chalo' protest: Heavy security at Haryana border to stop agitating farmers

In the wake of farmers' 'Delhi Chalo' protest march, heavy security has been deployed at Singhu border (Haryana-Delhi border) to stop the agitating farmers.

Proper barricading is also being done and police are ready to stop the farmers from entering the national capital.

Delhi Police have rejected all requests from various farmers' organisations to hold protest in the national capital on November 26 and 27.

Meanwhile, Haryana Police will deploy more than 1,500 security personnel at the Faridabad-Delhi borders.

Farmers coming from Ludhiana and other parts of Punjab to Delhi under the banner of Bharatiya Kisan Union are carrying months' rations with them.

Farmers in Punjab have been staging several protests against the three new farm laws, passed by the central government in September this year.

Parliament had passed the three agriculture Bills--The Farmers' and Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020, and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill, 2020.

Several opposition parties have termed these legislations as anti-farmer.

Youth Congress workers face water cannons after gheraoing Haryana CM's residence

Punjab Youth Congress workers faced water cannons from Police in Chandigarh after they gheraoed the residence of Haryana Chief Minister ML Khattar on December 02. The protest by the Youth Congress workers was against Haryana administration's tackling of protesting farmers last month when the disgruntled community from Punjab decided to march towards the national capital for their 'Delhi Chalo' protest against the new agricultural laws. Protesting farmers who were marching towards Delhi faced water cannon and tear gas shells from Haryana Police. The alleged use of force against farmers drew ire of opposition, mainly from Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh who criticised the handling, and later said he will not pick up the calls of his Haryana counterpart. Thousands of farmers have camped in and around the national capital for seven days now to intensify their protest against the new farm reforms which they have termed as "black laws".
