Mumbai: With the Centre-Kisan Negotiations deadlock, thousands of farmers stayed on Delhi’s borders to repeal agricultural marketing laws.
A meeting convened by Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday night failed as farmer leaders rejected the government’s offer to amend the new agricultural laws, saying they were nothing short of a violation of the law.
The sixth round of talks between the government and farmer unions has been canceled to end Wednesday’s protest at various borders in Delhi.
This occurred when several agricultural leaders threatened to boycott the talks.
As the protest continued, traffic was disrupted at the border points with agitating peasants on the Singhu, Tikori, and Ghazipur borders of Delhi.
Taking to Twitter, the Delhi Traffic Police alerted commuters that the Tikri, Jharoda, Dhansa border is closed for any traffic movement. However, the Jhatikara range is open only to two-wheelers and pedestrians.
It has also been said that people traveling to Haryana can take Daurala, Kapashera, Badusarai, Rajokri NH 8, Bijwasan / Bajghera, Palam Vihar, and Dundahera border.
“Singhu, Auchandi, Piao Maniyari, Mangesh borders are closed. NH-44 is closed on both sides. Take alternate routes via Lampur, Safiabad, Saboli, NH8/Bhopra /Apsara borders /Peripheral expressway, the Delhi Traffic Police tweeted.
Farmer leaders have been firm on their demand for the repeal of three new farm laws enacted in September.
