At the same time, the security at the Ghazipur – Ghaziabad (Delhi – Uttar Pradesh) border was tightened as the farmers continued with their march showing their protest in the area against the farm laws from the Centre. Heavy barricading was seen on the roads as the farmers took shelter at the Gazipur – Ghaziabad border on Sunday night.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar held a meeting at BJP chief JP Nadda’s residence on late Sunday night in order to discuss the ongoing farmers’ protests, as per reports.
Several areas in both Delhi and Haryana saw protests from the farmers after they rejected the offers from the Central Government to hold talks on the 3rd of December saying that if you impose conditions for starting a dialogue is nothing short of an insult to them.
Almost 32 farmer organisation with some of them hailing Gujarat and Maharashtra and majority belonging to Punjab had managed to reach Delhi on Friday and subsequently assembled at the border areas to continue with their protest.
The farmers are protesting 3 acts, which are:
- The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020
- The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020
- The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
