Farmers Protest Updates: Tear gas shells fired at farmers in Karnal, border seal of Delhi. Farmers of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan have gone on ‘Delhi Cooch’ from 26 to 28 November against three new agricultural laws made by the central government. To prevent their Delhi entry on Thursday, strict arrangements have been made by deploying police and security forces and putting barricades etc. on the Delhi-Haryana border. This morning, farmers of Punjab broke through the barricade on the Patiala Ambala highway and faced water canons and tear gas shells.
When these farmers reached Saadopur in Haryana, they once again had to face water cannons. Right now all the boundaries of Delhi are jammed and even the common man has to struggle to enter Delhi. On the other hand, Yoginder Yadav in Gurugram had called the Kisan Morcha to Delhi, but all those who reached there were taken into custody.
Section 144 has been imposed in Haryana. Senior officials are monitoring the situation. The drone is also being monitored. One lakh farmers are being claimed in Delhi Cooch. The farmers have warned that if they are stopped they will block all the routes to Delhi. In view of the farmers’ Delhi journey, DMRC has postponed all Metro services from NCR to Delhi till further orders.
“Today is 26/11 of Punjab: Sukhbir Badal Sukhbir Singh Badal has tweeted that today Punjab is 26/11. Today we are witnessing the end of democratic rights. The Akali Dal condemns the suppression of peaceful demonstrations of farmers by the Haryana government and the central government.”
DMRC has issued information that in view of the farmers’ agitation, Metro services coming from NCR to Delhi will be suspended tomorrow. However, metro services from Delhi to NCR stations will run smoothly.
Farmers Protest Updates : Former Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab Sukhbir Singh Badal has said on the farmers’ movement that farmers do not want to fight their battles under any political flag. Farmers belonging to all parties are together on the issue of agriculture bill. Captain Amarinder Singh has taken a very wobbly attitude in this matter as he did not perform at all. Sukhbir Singh Badal said that the Chief Minister should have pressured the Center. Should have gone to Delhi and held meetings.
Capt Amarinder Singh has said that the farmers are agitating against the law brought by the Center on the effort to stop the agitation. You cannot stop a person from going to the capital of the country, where his Parliament is, to hold demonstrations and cast their votes. Because you are stopping them.
