Farmers’ protest: Haryana Police advise people to avoid travelling to Delhi | Chandigarh News

CHANDIGARH: In view of the ‘Delhi Chalo’ march call being carried out by the farmers’ organizations, Haryana Police on Thursday advised the citizens to avoid travelling at entry points from Haryana to Delhi on National Highway No 10 (Hisar-Rohtak-Delhi) and National Highway 44 (Ambala-Panipat-Delhi) as they may face inconvenience and trouble on these routes.
Haryana DGP Manoj Yadava said that the field units of the police tried to prevent farmers coming from Punjab from entering Haryana in a restrained manner at the district border points. The police also tried to convince them by establishing barricades. But the agitating farmers not only damaged the barricades, but proceeded by removing all the blockades and obstructions. Acting with restraint, police did not use force on the agitating farmers. On the contrary, the farmers took an aggressive stand and tried to disturb the law and order by pelting stones at the police in many places. In this entire episode, not only a number of police personnel was injured but police and private vehicles were also damaged.
The DGP told that the general public is facing a lot of inconvenience on Delhi routes especially, between Panipat-Karnal, Karnal-Kurukshetra and Kurukshetra-Ambala. He regretted that some anti-social and mischievous elements are also working to damage public property under the guise of the farmers’ agitation. Strict action will be taken against such people as per law, he added.
