The purpose of the protest is to put pressure on the central government to accept various demands of the farmers. This includes pensions for farmers, a legal guarantee on Minimum Support Price (MSP) for crops and farm laborers, no hike in electricity tariffs, and a farm debt waiver. Farmers from different states, such as Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh, are expected to join the march.

After the announcement of the resumption of the march, Delhi police increased security at the Singhu, Tikri, and Ghazipur borders. This effort was to try to prevent the farmers’ march from entering the capital. Police are also deployed at bus stations, metro stations, and railways.

All About Last Month Farmers Protest 

The protesting farmers have been staying at border points between Haryana and Punjab after their “Delhi Chalo” march was stopped by security personnel on 13 February. The farmers have been staying at different places at the border of the national capital since then. Multiple negotiations have failed to resolve the situation between farmer leaders and the central government.

On 18 February, during the last round of talks, three union ministers offered to buy five crops. This included urad dal, moong dal, tur dal, cotton, and maize. However, this was only for five years at MSP but throughout the central agencies. However, the farmers turned down the offer and resumed the protest. 

Last month, a 21-year-old farmer was killed, and a few other farmers were injured in a clash between protesting farmers and security personnel at Khanauri on the Punjab-Haryana border.
