Thousands of farmers allied with the Bhartiya Kisan Union have gathered on the UP-Delhi border, waiting to enter the national capital on the 10th day of their protest march.
There are huge jams on nearly all arterial roads around the Parliament Street in Delhi as protestors continue their march.
Delhi police have imposed prohibitory orders in the areas bordering Uttar Pradesh anticipating law and order problems. The protesters are coming to the capital with several demands including farm loan-waiver, farmer friendly crop insurance and support for small and marginal farmers.
The Delhi Police are also in touch with their counterpart in Uttar Pradesh to ensure that the protesting farmers do not enter Delhi. “They have not sought any permission from the Delhi Police for the protests,” a senior police official said.
