The decision aims to curb any unlawful gatherings related to the farmers’ protest, prohibiting processions, demonstrations, rallies, or marches within Delhi limits until March 12.

The police justify these measures, citing a potential risk of widespread tension, public nuisance, and social unrest due to the perceived threat of violence from the march participants, equipped with modified tractors.

The police have taken steps to manage the situation, including deploying 10,000-15,000 personnel at Singhu, Tikri, and Ghazipur borders, along with the acquisition of equipment like belt cutters.

In addition to border deployments, there were plans to convert Bawana Stadium in northwest Delhi into a temporary jail. However, the Delhi government rejected this demand, with Home Minister Kailash Gehlot stating, “The demands of the farmers are genuine, and it is the constitutional right of every citizen to make a peaceful protest. Therefore, arresting the farmers is incorrect.”
