Farmers protesting against the new Farm Laws got permission to protest at Jantar Mantar in Delhi. The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) has permitted them to hold the Kisan Sansad at Jantar Mantar. Before Delhi police commissioner Balaji Srivastava visited the city’s traditional protest space Wednesday to take stock of the situation, several layers of barricades had already been erected and paramilitary personnel deployed there. The protesters will be taken to the site in buses with police escorts. Strict observance of Covid-appropriate behaviour is to be enforced. The approval for the extension of the farmers’ protest from the border sites was given by the LG and DDMA chairperson Anil Baijal. DDMA has allowed a maximum of 200 protesters bearing identity cards at Jantar Mantar each day between 11 am and 5 pm.
