The security measures in Delhi and along its borders with Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Punjab have been reinforced in anticipation of the farmers’ “Delhi Chalo” march on February 13. At the borders of Singhu, Ghazipur, and Tikri, law enforcement officials have erected barricades made of concrete blocks, iron nails, barbed wire, and other materials.
The demonstration, which was organized by more than 200 farmers’ unions and other farmers, is anticipated to arrive in the nation’s capital on Tuesday. The farmers are attempting to exert pressure on the central government to grant their requests, which include passing legislation ensuring a minimum support price (MSP) for crops.
In light of the protest by farmers, what is prohibited?
Complete ban on organizing, planning, or taking part in processions, protests, gatherings, or foot marches for political, social, or any other reason inside the boundaries of Delhi/New Delhi
There is a ban on carrying fire arms, explosives, corrosives, and deadly weapons in any public area inside Delhi/New Delhi. Tractor trolleys, trucks, and other vehicles used for people transportation are not allowed to enter the city.
Prohibition against the general public, public representatives, and agitators from obstructing roads, passageways, gatherings of five or more people with or without weapons, or organizing any kind of procession agitation, rally, or public meeting throughout Delhi’s jurisdiction, unless for reasons expressly allowed by law.
The government of Haryana has issued an order to stop bulk SMS and mobile internet services in seven districts: Ambala, Kurukshetra, Kaithal, Jind, Hisar, Fatehabad, and Sirsa.
