Delhi Liquor Policy Case: Arvind Kejriwal skips ED summons for the 6th time in a row. Here is the full news about the case.
Just before the farmers’ ‘Dilli Chalo’ protest, the Delhi Traffic Police had sent out a warning to the public. There will be detours near the Singhu Border (Delhi-Haryana), according to the police. The upcoming protest is for the demand of MSP, because it is one of the requirements farmers had set when they decided to end their agitation in 2021 was a law guaranteeing MSP for their produce. Hundreds of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh have called for a march on February 13 (Tuesday) to protest this demand.
The Delhi Police has set up barricades, laid nails across busy roads, and stationed cranes and earthmovers to guard the Punjabi border areas of Singhu, Ghazipur, and Tikri to keep farmers from entering the city. Farmers staged a nearly year-long sit-in protest against the three farm laws at these same entry points, after a year centre withdrew all the three laws which helped in the ending of protest.
While farmer unions have called for a protest march to Delhi on Tuesday, the Delhi police have begun making preparations, announcing several diversions for Monday & Tuesday and putting the entire North East district under prohibitory orders. Farmers said they would make a final decision on whether to proceed or not only after meeting with Union Agriculture Minister Arjun Munda, Union Minister Piyush Goyal, and Minister of State Nityanand Rai in Chandigarh on Monday.
In order to prevent any untoward incidents and uphold law and order, the Delhi Police (Northeast district) on Sunday invoked CrPC Section 144, which primarily forbids the gathering of people at the borders between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh and nearby areas — under the jurisdiction of Northeast Delhi.
