One Side Of All Highways At Delhi Borders Opened For Emergency Services: Farmers’ Union.
The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) said on Saturday that one side of all roads on the Delhi borders, where farmers have been camping for months to protest against new agricultural laws, was opened to ensure the free passage of tanker trucks from oxygen and ambulances amid COVID-19. crisis.
However, the SKM alleged, the Delhi Police have not removed the barricades.
This comes days after the SKM, a group of agricultural unions that spearheads the agitation against the center’s three agricultural laws, announced that one side of the road on the Singhu border will be cleared to give way to vehicles carry oxygen supplies.
In the interest of the nation, farmers have already opened one side of the roads at Delhi’s borders for emergency services, SKM said in a statement.
Volunteers in Singhu, Ghazipur, Tikri, and Shahjahanpur are constantly playing the role of COVID warriors and emergency services are open at all borders, he said.
Although the Delhi Police have not yet removed the barricades, vehicles coming or going to Delhi face no problem due to the protests of the farmers. Farmers are helping COVID warriors reach their destinations, he added.
The SKM, according to the statement, with the help of some medical and social welfare organizations, is encouraging farmers to maintain sanitation in the protest sites.
At the Tikri border, a team led by Dr. Sawaiman Singh is reaching out to farmers and urging them to take necessary precautions against the coronavirus, he added.
On Wednesday, Delhi police created a green corridor for a truck carrying oxygen containers from the Singhu border to a private hospital in Rohini that was running out of supply.
