Farmers protest: In view of the farmers’ march to Delhi, the governments of Punjab and Haryana as well as the Center have taken strict measures. Against this background, the borders in many districts of Haryana were sealed, but internet services were also banned. Against this move of the government, a petition has been filed in the Punjab Haryana High Court, which can be heard today. The petition calls for the border to be opened and internet services to be restored.
These allegations were made in the petition
Plaintiff Uday Pratap Singh sought a direction from the court to stop all obstructive measures taken by the Haryana, Punjab and central governments against the farmers’ protest. It is alleged that Section 144 has been imposed in 15 districts, which is a violation of fundamental rights and is unconstitutional. Even ordinary people are harassed.
Call of the farmers: “We are going to Delhi today”
Samyukta Kisan Morcha (Non-Political) and Kisan Mazdoor Morcha have announced that they have made several demands, including enacting a law to ensure minimum support price (MSP), but the Center has not taken any action on it. We will march to Delhi to put pressure on the central government.
Internet service is closed in these counties
The Haryana government has shut down internet services in seven districts of the state for three days starting Sunday in view of the farmers’ march on Delhi. All these districts share border with Punjab. Home Minister TVSN Prasad had issued orders in this regard on Saturday. The districts where internet is closed include Ambala, Kaithal, Kurukshetra, Jind, Hisar, Fatehabad and Sirsa of Haryana.
