Section 144 Imposed at Delhi-UP Borders

The Delhi Police have put a rule in place called Section 144 at the borders between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. This means that people are not allowed to gather in large groups in these areas. The police want to make sure that everything stays peaceful and under control.

Why is Section 144 Being Imposed?

The police have received information that some farmer groups are planning to come to Delhi on February 13 to protest. They want the government to make a law that guarantees a minimum support price for farmers. The police want to prevent any problems or violence from happening, so they are putting this rule in place.

What is Prohibited?

According to the order, people are not allowed to gather at the borders between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. They are also not allowed to bring tractors, trolleys, buses, trucks, or any other vehicles to Delhi for the protest. The police will try their best to stop protestors from entering Delhi.

People are also not allowed to carry weapons like guns, swords, or rods. If anyone breaks these rules, they can be punished under the law.

Why Are Farmers Protesting?

Farmers are protesting because they want the government to make a law that guarantees a minimum support price for their crops. They also want the government to follow the recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission, which is a group that gives advice on farming. Farmers are asking for pensions, debt relief, and justice for victims of violence.

Last year, many farmers from Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh protested against some farm laws. They stayed at the borders of Delhi for a whole year to show their disagreement with these laws.

What’s Happening in Haryana?

The Haryana government has also put a rule in place called Section 144. This means that people are not allowed to have processions, demonstrations, or carry weapons in certain areas. The police have also suspended mobile internet services and bulk SMSes in some districts to prevent the spread of false information.

What Can Commuters Expect?

If you are planning to travel between Chandigarh and Delhi on February 13, there might be some disruptions and traffic congestion. The police have suggested alternative routes to help ease the traffic.

Security Measures

The police have set up barricades and closed some roads at the border points to make sure everything is secure. Senior police officials have inspected these areas to check the security arrangements.

Everyone needs to stay safe and follow the rules during this protest. Let’s hope that everything stays peaceful and that the farmers’ concerns are heard.
