    People cross Delhi-Haryana border on foot as police block vehicle movement | ActionPunjab


    Farmers’ protest march: People were forced to cross the Singhu border between Delhi and Haryana on foot because police were blocking vehicle traffic in anticipation of a farmers’ march to the national capital.

    Police have set up barricades and concrete slabs on the road to prevent protesting farmers from entering Delhi.

    Hem Singh, who lives in Karnal, Haryana, said he was on his way to northeast Delhi to attend a wedding when his bus came to a halt nearly a kilometre from the border.

    “My nephew is getting married in northeast Delhi’s Gokulpuri on Wednesday, and we’re stuck here because of traffic. The bus driver came to a halt a kilometre before the border. We are walking towards Delhi and are unsure whether we will find a vehicle.”

    “We were aware of the farmers’ march, but had no idea we’d be stuck here. I asked my wife and daughter to return to Panipat, but my daughter is very excited to attend her cousin’s wedding,” he explained.

    The farmers intend to march to Delhi to press for their demands, which include the passage of a law to ensure a minimum support price (MSP) for crops. The protesting farmer groups are primarily from Punjab, Haryana, and western Uttar Pradesh.
