DELHI GOVERNMENT TAKES A STAND AS DELHI POLICE FORCED TO BUCKLE
NEW DELHI: The Delhi government put its foot down on Friday and stood with farmers protesting the recently passed farm laws, denying the Delhi Police permission to mass detain the protesting farmers in nine temporary jails to be made out of stadiums in the Capital. As a result, the Delhi Police was forced to grant permission for their protest even as they bombarded the protesters with tear gas shells, water cannon shots and bouts of lathicharge throughout the day.
As the authorities in the North Delhi Municipal Corporation began preparing the Nirankari Ground at Burari, where the protest has been allowed, tens of thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala and other states are expected to converge in Delhi throughout the night on tractors and trucks.
On Friday as the protesters started swelling on Delhi’s borders, law enforcement officials began tear gas shelling from as early as 8 am in some areas near the Singhu border. Bouts of lathicharge were also seen on the Tikri border and water cannons were used generously to “disperse the protesters”.
