A batch of 200 farmers from the Singhu border will march for Parliament in a short while today against the three agricultural laws. 200 farmers of 40 organizations, who have been staging a sit-in on all the borders of Delhi for about 8 months, have gathered at the Singhu border. Farmers have been allowed to go to Jantar Mantar, some distance away from Parliament House, from 11 am to 5 pm. The police will take them with them and bring them back on their own after a day-long dharna.
A monitor was made on 5 farmers
Taking lessons from the violence that took place during the tractor yatra in Delhi on January 26, the police have made special arrangements this time. Delhi Police has deployed 5 buses to take farmers from Singhu border to Jantar Mantar. Every 10 40 years will sit with it and leave with a police escort. Identity cards have been issued to all the farmers. Apart from this, they also have to carry Aadhar card with them.

Over 5 farmers selected from each organization have been placed as a representative monitor. The president of that organization will be monitored over the farmer organization monitor. The farmers will travel to Jantar Mantar by buses provided by Delhi Police. The 200 meter area of Jantar Mantar has been equipped with CCTV. Para Military Force has been deployed. After finishing the dharna at 5 pm, the farmers will similarly go back to the Singhu border in security by buses.

Rakesh Tikait, national spokesperson of Bharatiya Kisan Union said that a total of 40 organizations are participating in this farmers’ movement. 5-5 farmers from each organization have been selected to visit Jantar Mantar on the first day. Tikait said, it is our responsibility that there will be no anarchy from the side of the protesters. If any outside element enters between them, then it will not be our responsibility.
