Delhi Police removes barricades from Ghazipur border, Rakesh Tikait said crop will reach Parliament
Delhi Police has started removing the barricading on the Ghazipur border on Friday morning.
A few months ago, the Delhi Police had put up several levels of barricading, which included barricades made of iron nails, concrete, etc., to prevent farmers protesting against agricultural laws from entering Delhi. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at this initiative of the police and tweeted, "Right now only the pretentious barricades have been removed, soon all the three anti-agriculture laws will also be removed. Annadata Satyagraha Zindabad."
According to news agency ANI, a police officer said that there is an order from the government, so the way is being opened by removing the barricades. Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait said on the decision to remove the barricading, "The Prime Minister had said that the farmer can sell his crop anywhere. If the roads open, we will also go to Parliament to sell our crops. First, our tractors will go to Delhi. The roads are not blocked. We will plan ahead and tell."
