On Thursday, commuters from Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad faced inconvenience as train services between Delhi and NCR Metro stations on seven corridors were closed till 2pm due to the ongoing farmers’ protest.
The farmers planned to reach Delhi on Thursday through five highways connecting the national capital as part of the protest.
The Delhi Police, however, said they have rejected all requests received from various farmer organisations regarding the protest and warned of legal action against them if they came to the city to hold any gathering amid the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak.
Delhi Police personnel have been deployed in large numbers in the border areas of the national capital and all incoming vehicles were being checked in view of the protest.
The All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC), Rashtriya Kisan Mahasangh and various factions of the Bharatiya Kisan Union have joined hands and formed a ‘Samyukta Kisan Morcha‘ to press the central government to scrap the three new farm laws.
