Posted on 6th Mar 2021 01:19 pm by rohit kumar

Today is the 101st day of the peasant movement. Farmers sitting in protest against agricultural laws are blocking the KMP-KGP Expressway in Haryana from 11 am to 4 pm on Saturday. During this time vehicles of essential services will not be stopped. This jam is being imposed on the call of United farmer Morcha. At the same time, the police administration is ready to deal with the situation. The police administration has devised a strategy to deal with mischievous elements and put up duties of police personnel under the leadership of DSP level officers.


Police, RAF, paramilitary and anti-riot squad deployed


Police personnel and RAF paramilitary forces have been deployed with anti-riot equipment in addition to the concerned police station and outpost in-charge to assist DSP level officers. Traffic diversion has also been made separately because of the possibility of road jamming in the district. Apart from this, 8 places will be blocked at National Highway on the Gadpuri border, Doodhaula Mor, Karman Border, Babri Mode Hodal, Asavata Mode, Agra Chowk, and KGP at Jalahaka and Noh Border at KMP. Farmer leaders have said that till the agricultural laws are withdrawn and the MSP is not enacted, the farmers will continue the movement.


More than 200 agitators killed so far


On 26 November, farmers from Punjab and Haryana sat on a strike at the Tekri border near Bahadurgarh on the Rohtak-Delhi highway and Kundli at Sonepat on National Highway No.1. There were reports of clashes between farmers and police throughout Haryana. Lathicharge and water cannon were used. After this, on the very first day of the dharna, a tractor mechanic from Punjab, Janakraj died after being burnt alive in a car near the Tikri. Then more than 200 agitators have died due to chills, heart attacks, and mental stress suicides.


There was a nuisance in Delhi on 26 January


For the last 100 days, farmers' protests are going on all around Delhi including Tikri, Kundli, and Ghazipur. The biggest controversy occurred on January 26, when farmers were allowed to enter the name of the tractor parade in Delhi and then hoisted the Khalsayi flag insulting the tricolor at the ramparts of the Red Fort. A large number of police personnel were also injured during the nuisance. The Punjab government has appointed a panel of 70 lawyers to fight the case registered against the agitating farmers named in this case.
