Who has applied?
The application was made by law student Habshabh Sharma. He says the public is being harassed as roads are jammed due to the peasant movement. The risk of corona is also increasing due to the lack of social distance at the demonstration sites. He said in his petition that the farmers should be removed from the borders of Delhi and relocated to the designated place allotted by the government. Along with this, farmers should also follow Koro’s guidelines during the demonstration.
On the other hand, resolute farmers on Wednesday blocked the Delhi-Noida link road on the Chilla border demanding repeal of the Agriculture Act. Because of this, there is a state of jam. There are long queues of vehicles on the roads. The farmers decided to open the Chilla border late at night on December 13 after talks with Defense Minister Rajnath Singh.
