Farmers Protest Delhi Police Sets Up Checkpoints To Stop Farmers, Haryana Seals Borders With Punjab

  • 3 years ago
The Delhi Police on November 24 said legal action will be taken against the protesting farmers if they come to the city for any gathering amid the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. The farmers, who are protesting against the Centre's three new farm laws, will reach Delhi on November 26 through five highways connecting the national capital as part of the 'Delhi Chalo' march. The police, however, took to Twitter and said that no permission has been granted for any such gathering in the national capital. The Haryana police has issued a travel advisory, asking commuters to avoid certain national highways along the state border with Punjab & Delhi for three days, in view of the 'Dilli Chalo' farmers' protest on November 26 and 27. From November 25, a large number of farmers from Haryana and Punjab are expected to march towards Delhi to continue their protest against the three contentious farm laws - viewed as anti-farmer - after several rounds of failed talks with representatives of the central government. Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on November 24 said that the state government has decided to seal the Haryana-Punjab border from November 25 to 27.
