Former BJP ally Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has said that the treatment done to stop the farmers from coming to Delhi is an insult to the farmers.
He told reporters, “The way farmers have been prevented from coming to Delhi, it seems that they are not from the country but outside. They were treated like terrorists. Because they are Sikhs and have come from Punjab-Haryana, they are being called Khalistani. To behave like this is insulting the farmers of the country. “
Some groups of farmers from Uttar Pradesh gathered at the Ghazipur border with their vehicles on Saturday afternoon.
These farmers of Uttar Pradesh are giving their support to the farmers of Punjab, who are protesting against the new agricultural laws of the Center. A senior police officer from Delhi said that on the call of ‘Delhi Chalo’ march of farmers’ organizations of Punjab, around 200 farmers have come to UP Gate (Ghazipur border) and police officers are talking to them.
He said that the protesting farmers have parked their vehicles at the designated place so that the common people do not have any problem and the traffic should be run properly.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Jasmeet Singh said, “The farmers are demanding that they want to move towards Delhi but we are talking to them. At this time, their number is about 200. He is sitting at the UP gate. “
Farmers protesting against the new agricultural laws brought by the government in Burari, Delhi, say that they will not leave from here until their demands are met.
A farmer participating in the protest told the news agency ANI, “We do not trust the government. There have been talks with the government before this but no result came. We want the government to withdraw this law.”
Another farmer says, “We will continue to protest until the government agrees to our demands. We have brought many months of ration. Our problem must be resolved.”
After crossing the Singhu border from Delhi Haryana on Saturday, after the farmers reached Burari, now farmers have started reaching Delhi from the ticker border too.
However, a group of farmers are still demonstrating on the Singhu border. The Bharatiya Kisan Union, taking part in the protests, says that they will continue to protest at the Singhu border and will not go to any place mentioned by the administration.
