After Delhi police began lifting barricades at the farmers’ protest site in Ghazipur, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Friday that the three “anti-farming” farm laws would also be withdrawn soon.
“Only man-made barricades have been removed so far, soon the three anti-agriculture laws will also be removed. Hi Annadata Satyagraha,” he said in a Hindi tweet, using the hashtag “FarmersProtest”.
On Friday, Delhi police began removing barricades and accordion wires they had put up at the anti-agriculture law protest site in Ghazipur, on the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border.
Several layers of iron and cement barricades, and at least five layers of accordion wire were erected last year, and further reinforced after the violence on January 26 this year during farmers’ protest against the three disputed farm laws .
Deputy Police Commissioner (East) Priyanka Kashyap said on Friday: “The process of removing the barricades on the NH-9 has started. The temporary barricade is being removed to facilitate the movement of vehicles. However, the road National 24 was already open to traffic. ”
The opening of the road section would help thousands of commuters in Ghaziabad, Delhi, Noida as well as those traveling between the national capital and the interior of Uttar Pradesh to Meerut and beyond.
