Chandigarh (EMS). Farmer organizations have now started putting pressure on the central government to get their demands met. Under this, farmer organizations have called for Bharat Bandh on 16 February. 26 farmer organizations, including Sanyukta Kisan Morcha and Kisan Mazdoor Morcha, have said that if the government does not make any immediate announcement on their demands, they will leave for Delhi on 13 February and Bharat Bandh will be observed on 16 February. For this, farmers will travel towards Delhi in tractor trolleys. Farmers of Punjab have said that they will enter Haryana to go to Delhi on 10 thousand tractor trolleys. Shambhu Border, Dabwali and Khanauri Border have been selected for this. This will not be so easy because all three borders have been sealed. A large number of security forces have also been deployed here. Along with the police, BSF and RAF personnel have also been deployed on the Punjab-Haryana border. Haryana government has already sealed the border with Punjab to stop the farmers. Also, maximum number of security forces have been deployed.
At the same time, Section 144 has also been imposed in Ambala to stop the farmers of Punjab from going to Delhi via Haryana. The Shambhu border between Punjab and Haryana has been completely closed by installing cement barricades and barbed wires. Even the administration has closed the bridge over the Ghaggar river. Five layer security arrangements have been made in Bahadurgarh. Barbed wire and cement barricades have been installed on the Tikri border.
Apart from this, the road route from Patiala to Ambala has also been diverted to the other side. Along with this, after Sonipat, Jhajjar, Panchkula, Section 144 has also been imposed in Kaithal. Farmers from Punjab via Chandigarh can also enter Haryana via Panchkula to go to Delhi. Therefore these routes have also been closed.
Haryana Police has also issued traffic advisory for the people. People have been advised not to go to Punjab by bus because if the situation worsens, Ambala-Chandigarh National Highway-152, Ambala-Hisar National Highway-65, Panipat-Jalandhar National Highway-44 and Ambala-Kala Amb National Highway-344. can also be closed. Mobile internet service has been suspended in 7 districts of Haryana.
On the other hand, the second round of meeting between the farmers and the central government will be held in Chandigarh on Monday, February 12 at 5 pm at Sector 26 Mahatma Gandhi State Institute of Public Administration. Union Ministers Arjun Munda, Piyush Goyal and Nityanand Rai will attend this meeting from the Central Government.
