Peasants’ movement: Makeshift prisons built in Fatehabad and Tohana, nails laid on roads and pits dug

Fatehabad. Following the announcement of a farmers’ march to Delhi on February 13, the government has set up makeshift prisons in Fatehabad and Tohana. To prevent the farmers of Punjab from entering Haryana and going to Delhi, the district administration has sealed the entire area bordering Punjab. Police used cranes to lift huge concrete pillars at Myond Kalan outpost and Bhakra Bridge and placed them in the middle of the roads. Bags filled with earth have been placed along these pillars to create a strong barrier so that tractors and other vehicles belonging to farmers cannot cross the roads. In addition, sharp nails were planted in the road near Bhakra Bridge on the Kulan-Jakhal main road to prevent the farmers from forcibly entering Fatehabad district during their march to Delhi. Since Jakhal lies on the border with Punjab, the police are holding a special vigil here. Police have taken strict precautions to stop the farmers.

On Sunday morning, under the leadership of Deputy Superintendent of Police Tohana, Bhakra Bridge at Myond Police Post was completely cordoned off with solid barricades.
