Famers who are in protest against the farm laws along with farm unions have planned chakka jam or road blockage across the country for three hours beginning from 12-3 pm
New Delhi, February 6: Famers protesting against the Centre's proposed farm laws along with farm unions have planned a chakka jam or road blockage across the country for 3 hours beginning from 12-3 pm.
However, the chakka jam will exclude Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand to ensure that any kind of violence which took place during the Republic Day tractor parades is not be repeated.
On the other hand, all the essential services such as school buses, ambulances and such other important movements will be uninterrupted said the farmer organisations.
The umbrella body for the farmer protests, the Sanyukta Kisan Morcha said that since all the protests sites are already in chakka jam mode therefore there will be no chakka jam inside Delhi. All the roads entering Delhi will remain open except for the ones where framers’ protest sites are already present.
The Sanyukta Kisan Morcha also said that there will be no interruption in the movement of essential services such as school buses, ambulance, fire brigade and others essential movements during the chakka jam.
The farmer organisations have assured that the chakka jam will be completely peaceful and non-violent, and the protesters have been asked not to get involved in any kind of conflict with government officials or any citizen. At the end of the chakka jam there will be blowing of horns for one minute, to convey a message of solidarity with the farmers.
Delhi Police have tightened up the security at Ghazipur, Tikri and Singhu borders. Delhi Police have tightened the security arrangements at the borders to make sure that nobody enters the capital and to avoid violence which took place earlier during the Republic Day.
