Thousands of farmers march against controversial regulations after seven months of protest.

Farmers march against controversial regulations after seven months of protest

Farmers' protest: As a precaution, the Chandigarh traffic police have shut down 13 entry and departure points in the city from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Additional police officers have been deployed by the Delhi police. Farmers from around the country are going to the governor houses in their various states to put up a rally calling for the repeal of three contentious agri-marketing regulations enacted by the federal government, marking the end of seven months of demonstrations.

Although seven farm laws have been passed since the campaign began, the farmers' protest has remained constant with their single-minded demand to abolish the three agricultural laws. 

Farmers have been camping near the national capital's Singh, Tikri, and Ghazipur borders since last winter. According to the news agency PTI, June 26 will be designated as "Save Agriculture, Save Democracy Day." On the other side, intelligence services have informed the Delhi Police that the farmers' movement is likely to be disrupted by Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

Authorities have written a letter to the police and the central armed forces, warning that ISI proxies located in Pakistan might seek to discredit the farmers' protest by inciting security troops on the ground. The Delhi Police has stepped up security policies and deployed extra troops all across reported locations of unrest based on these reports.

As a precaution, the Chandigarh traffic police have blocked off 13 entry and departure points in the city from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. "The public is advised not to use these routes and to stay at home except in case of any emergency," the traffic advisory read.
