A farmer demonstration at the Singhu border began on the 67th day against agricultural laws passed by the central government. The administration has taken serious security measures along the Singhu border (Delhi-Haryana border). At the same time, to break the impasse, the next round of meeting between farmers and the Center is scheduled for February 2. On the other hand, today is the 65th day of farmers protest along the Gazipur border (Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border). Security has been increased in view of the number of farmers visiting the protest site after the situation created in the past.
Farmers are adamant about repealing agricultural laws. Meanwhile, in order to ensure public safety, the Union Ministry of Internal Affairs temporarily suspended the provision of Internet access at three borders and in adjacent areas from 23:00 on January 29 to January 11 on January 31. At the same time, Delhi police shut down NH-24 as a precautionary measure.
