After an inconclusive meeting with Union ministers on Monday, farmer leaders reported that the government only provided assurances regarding their demand for MSP on all crops. The farmers, stationed at Mahila Chowk village in Sangrur, have stocked up on essential supplies for their journey.

Ahead of the ‘Delhi Chalo’ march by farmer unions, authorities in Haryana and Delhi fortified their borders with neighbouring states by putting up concrete blocks, road spike barriers, and barbed wires to prevent the entry of vehicles and deploying thousands of police personnel, besides imposing prohibitory orders.

In anticipation of potential unrest, Delhi Police imposed a ban on large gatherings across the national capital until March 12. Farmers, however, claim that barricades won’t hold them back, asserting they can break them within half an hour.

Delhi Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora’s order also prohibits rallies, entry of tractors into the capital, and the carrying of firearms, inflammable substances, makeshift weapons, petrol cans, soda bottles, and the use of loudspeakers.

Farmers, marching on February 13, aim to compel the Centre to address various demands, including the enactment of a law guaranteeing MSP for crops. Jagjit Singh Dallewal, a leader from Samyukta Kisan Morcha, stated that over 200 farmers’ unions nationwide will participate in the ‘Delhi Chalo’ march.

To fortify borders, authorities in Haryana and Delhi have implemented concrete blocks, road spike barriers, barbed wires, and deployed numerous police personnel, along with imposing prohibitory orders. Stay updated on the latest developments in the farmers’ protest.
