farmersprotests New Delhi: Farmers are sitting on dharna on the capital’s border and thousands of farmers have moved from Panipat to Delhi in support of them. Farmer leader Gurnam Singh had called upon farmers to walk to Delhi on June 10, after which Delhi Police received intelligence inputs that farmers could try to enter Delhi as well.

Police on alert to deal with the situation

So the police have asked their force to be on alert to deal with any situation. According to Delhi Police sources, the farmers had made a call that they would reach Delhi’s Singh border on June 10 and be part of the months-long farmers’ agitation.

Whenever there is a call by farmers to do something towards Delhi, the precautionary police are alerted because the police have not yet forgotten the violence of January 26.

Just as farmers broke their promise after getting permission for a tractor parade on January 26, entered Delhi and resorted to violent violence. After the incident, Delhi Police had registered several FIRs and arrested a large number of people.

This was stated by farmers’ organizations.

Speaking to anindianews, a senior police official said that farmers march in this way with the aim of keeping their movement alive and sending farmers already on dharna back home for some time. So that the farmers sit at the demonstration site from time to time, if some farmers go to their homes, in their absence, the new farmers sit on dharna at the border. Thus, the number of farmers on the Delhi border never decreases.
