After removing barricades from Tikri Border, delhi police has now started removing them from Ghazipur border as well. After almost 11 months, Delhi police started removing barricades from Ghazipur border where farmers were protesting. A police official informed that as per the orders of the government, the police is freeing the area by removing barricades from the border.
The lane on Ghaziabad-Delhi expressway was blocked from around 11 months causing inconvenience to the passengers.
After opening one lane of Tikri border, which joins Haryana and Punjab, where the farmers were protesting, the Delhi police is carrying out the same activity on Ghazipur border, that joins Uttar Pradesh and Delhi.
The removal of barricades started from Friday morning and will assist transportation and travel between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.
Rakesh Tikait, leader of Bharatiya Kisan Union, said that PM Modi said that farmers can sell their crops anywhere and hence, if the roads will be opened, they will also go to parliament to sell their crops. He also said that all tractors will move to Delhi and that neither the roads have been blocked by the farmers nor it is a part of their protest.
On UP gate, the lanes heading to Delhi are under the control of Farmers since November 28,2020 who are protesting against the three contentious farm laws. Barricades were put up because of security reasons by the Delhi police.
The matter of roads blockage at Delhi borders is being heard by Supreme Court of India. During the last hearing the apex court raised several questions and said that when the farm laws are on hold, why is the protest being carried out? It also expressed disappointment at the roads being blocked by the farmers who are protesting.
