New Delhi: After almost 1 year of blocking roads, The Delhi Police on 29th October has started removing barricades and nails at Ghazipur and Singhu border. Here Thousands of protesters are protesting against the Centre’s three new farm laws.
In Midnight, police started removing Iron nails and cement barricades. 5 layers of metal wires were put up due to the aftermath of the January 26 violence when protesters acquired Red Fort.
The Police officials have released a statement, “we have received orders and we are following the same”. The move has been initiated after Supreme Court’s lash that protesters cannot block public roads indefinitely.
On October 21st, Supreme Court said, “Ultimately some solution has to be found. We are not against the right to protest even when a legal challenge is pending. But, how can you block roads like this,” said, Justice Kaul.
Whereas, BKU Spokesperson and Leader Rakesh Tikait has condemned this action by Police. Rakesh stressed, “PM Modi said that farmers can sell crops anywhere. If roads are open, we will also go to the Parliament to sell our crops. First, our tractors will go to Delhi. We haven’t blocked the way. Blocking was never part of our protest.”
