Digital Desk, New Delhi. The Delhi government on Wednesday allowed farmers to hold protests at Jantar Mantar. Farmers will now be able to protest at Jantar Mantar from July 22 to August 9 between 11 am and 5 pm with a maximum of 200 protesters wearing masks and following COVID protocols like social distancing.
The DDMA said that the farmers protesting at Jantar Mantar from July 22 to August 9 will be brought by bus on the route prescribed by the police. At the same time, a separate group of 6 members will be brought by SUV. During this, everyone will have to follow the guidelines issued by Kovid Appropriate Behavior and Delhi and Central Government. Farmers plan to organize Kisan Parliament parallel to the monsoon session of Parliament.
Earlier, Shiv Kumar Kakka, national president of Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Mahasangh, had said in an interview to a news agency that 200 farmers would protest at Jantar Mantar from Singhu border wearing identity badges. Every day a speaker and a deputy speaker will be elected. The APMC Act will be discussed in the first two days. Later, other bills will also be discussed every two days.
Since last year, farmers have been protesting at the Delhi border against the central agricultural laws. In the past, the United Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of over 40 farmer unions, had planned that around 200 farmers would protest outside Parliament every day from July 22 during the monsoon session. The monsoon session of Parliament has begun on July 19 and will end on August 13.
