The Haryana government has become alert in view of the Punjab farmer’s Delhi Chalo movement. The police deployment has been increased along the state border adjoining Punjab and Delhi. In Fatehabad, the road has been closed on the Ratia-Sardulgarh route near village Nagpur, while in Tohana, police have been deployed at the barrier.
15 duty magistrates have been appointed in all areas. DSP and station in-charge have been deployed with them. The police have arrested the state general secretary Tejinder Singh of the Dehati Mazdoor Sabha from Ratia region. This has increased the resentment of the farmers.
