Farmers from Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh have once again taken to the streets, resuming their protests to demand the implementation of the Minimum Support Price (MSP) among other issues. Despite a 5-hour emergency meeting in Chandigarh on Monday, the discussions ended without any resolution, leading to the decision of over 200 farmer organizations to march towards Delhi on February 13.


Key Highlights:

  • Persistent Demands: Farmers are rallying under the banners of Kisan Mazdoor Morcha (KMM) and Samyukt Kisan Morcha, adamant about their demands for the implementation of MSP and other rights, despite the unfruitful negotiations with the government.


  • Prepared Defenses: Delhi Police, along with CRPF units, are fully prepared to prevent the farmers from entering Delhi at all costs. Barricades, heavy cement blocks, containers, and dumpers have been strategically placed to block routes, and all borders around Delhi have been sealed.


  • Clashes at Shambhu Border: A confrontation occurred at the Shambhu border as farmers attempted to breach the barricades, leading to police deploying tear gas and causing panic among the protesters.


  • Delhi on High Alert: In anticipation of the march, Delhi has ramped up security measures, including shutting down metro stations and imposing heavy traffic restrictions across the city. The iconic Red Fort has been closed, and airport authorities have been instructed to enforce strict measures.

As thousands of farmers gather at the borders, ready to march towards Delhi, the city braces for potential disruptions. The farmers’ unwavering determination to have their demands heard underscores the ongoing struggle for rights and fair treatment in the agricultural sector. With the government and security forces on high alert, the situation remains tense as both sides stand firm on their positions.
