Farmers against Farm Laws 2020: Though the Central government has invited the Kisan Unions for the next round of talks on December 3, the farmers are all set for ‘Dilli Chalo’ agitation.
How will this agitation affect the common man?
The Kisan Unions on November 19 announced that not only Punjab but farmers from across the nation would move to Delhi as a part of the ‘Dilli Chalo’ agitation called against the Centre’s farm laws 2020.
Yogendra Yadav, a member of the core committee of Kisan Unions, had announced that the farmers will gherao Delhi from 5 national highways i.e. National Highway 1 to Delhi (GT Road), Jaipur-Delhi Highway, Agra-Delhi highway (Ballabhgarh), Rohtak-Hisar (Bahadurgarh), and Bareilly-Delhi Highway.
However, it is pertinent to mention that the Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday announced that Haryana will seal its border with Punjab to avoid farmers’ movement.
In addition, the Haryana police has issued a traffic advisory for November 25, 26, and 27.
To ensure law and order, it is likely that the traffic diversion/roadblocks by police may be put into place on the following roads and points on Nov 25, 26, and 27:
- Entry points from Punjab into Haryana in the districts of Panchkula, Ambala, Kaithal Jind, Fatehabad, and Sirsa.
- Four major national highways to Delhi i.e. Ambala to Delhi, Hisar to Delhi, Rewari to Delhi, and Palwal to Delhi.
- Specifically, at the Shambhu border, Distt. Ambala, Mundhai Chowk, Distt. Bhiwani, Anaj Mandi, Gharaunda, Distt. Karnal, Tikri Border, Bahadurgarh, Distt. Jhajjar and Rajiv Gandhi Education City, Rai, Distt. Sonipat.
Meanwhile, the farmers have also announced that if they will be stopped while heading towards Delhi during the ‘Dilli Chalo’ agitation, they will sit there only and stage an indefinite dharna against farm laws 2020, peacefully.
“If the Centre fails to meet the farmers’ demand, then we will block the national highways and continue to gherao Delhi,” BKU Leader, Gurnam Singh Charuni had announced.
Therefore, if you are planning to travel to Delhi via Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, and Himachal Pradesh, then you should avoid it on November 25, 26, and 27.
