Anniversary of Agriculture Act: Police block Akali Dal’s protest march; Harsimrat Kaur said, “Unannounced in the country …”

One year has passed since the implementation of three agricultural laws brought by the Modi government. Today, the Shiromani Akali Dal is celebrating ‘Black Day’ to oppose these laws. Akali Dal workers were planning to march from Gurdwara Rakabganj in Delhi to Parliament. Accordingly, they marched in many parts of the city. This caused traffic jams in some parts of the city. Police in riot gear stormed a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck. Also, the activists coming to Delhi from Punjab were sent back. Party leader Harsimrat Kaur Badal shared a video related to the incident and accused the country of imposing an undeclared state of emergency.

Badal tweeted, “All access to the city has been closed by Delhi Police. It is highly reprehensible for the police to arrest Akali Dal activists who have reached Gurudwara Rakabajganj. I have been getting phone calls and videos showing how the police are trying to disrupt this protest against agricultural laws. This is an undeclared emergency. ”

A statement issued by the Delhi Police said that the Akali Dal’s protest march was to be taken from Gurudwara Rakabganj to Parliament. However, the march was not allowed due to the proliferation of corona and the rules currently in force. Section 144 has been implemented in New Delhi district area. New Delhi Deputy Commissioner of Police Deepak Yadav said, “Some people had gathered near Gurudwara Rakabganj for a protest march organized by the Akali Dal. We have already made it clear to them that we are in touch with their leaders and no permission has been granted for the march. ”

Security forces have been deployed in the Shankar Road area in view of the protest. At the same time, in many parts of Delhi, people had to suffer due to traffic jams before the agitation. In the morning, there was a traffic jam on Jhandewala-Panchkuia road. Also, entry and exit from Shri Ram Sharma and Bahadurgarh City metro stations are closed, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said.
