Farmers allowed entry into Delhi for peaceful protests

Chandigarh: Punjab farmers’ bodies protesting against the Centre’s farm laws on Friday claimed that the Union government has allowed them entry into Delhi with permission to hold their agitation at the Burari ground.

“We have been allowed safe passage to Delhi,” claimed Krantikari Kisan Union president Darshan Pal.

He said that officials of the Union home ministry had allowed them a place at Burari in Delhi to hold the agitation.

Bharatiya Kisan Union (Rajewal) president Balbir Singh Rajewal said that farmers were headed to the Burari ground.

Earlier, farmers had demanded that they be allowed to hold their protest at the Ramlila ground but the Delhi Police had denied the request.

Despite heavy security deployment, groups of agitating farmers from Punjab and Haryana reached near two Delhi borders on Friday morning after breaking police barricades on the way as part of their protest march against the Centre’s new farm laws.

The Delhi Police has enhanced deployment of security personnel, stationed sand-laden trucks and water cannons and used barbed wire for fencing at the Singhu and Tikri border points (Delhi-Haryana border) to prevent the protesters from entering the city.

Farmers have been protesting against the Centre’s three farm laws and expressed apprehension that they would pave the way for the dismantling of the minimum support price system, leaving them at the “mercy” of big corporates.

They have been demanding that the new laws should be repealed.

The Centre has invited several Punjab farm bodies for talks in Delhi on December 3.
