New Delhi: Multi-layer security has been arranged around Jantar-Mantar where farmers are scheduled to hold Kisan Sansad to protest against the three farm laws that were passed in September last year. The entire area, which is just a few minutes away from parliament, has been cordoned off with heavy security deployed all around it.
Arrangements have been made considering Covid-19 norms. Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) had on Wednesday granted permission to farmers to assemble at Jantar-Mantar with appropriate Covid management protection.
Farmers have been allowed to hold protests at Jantar-Mantar from July 22 to August 9, with maximum of 200 people in attendance. After the order, Delhi police scaled up security at Jantar-Mantar and three borders of Delhi – Tikri, Singhu and Ghazipur.
