Delhi News Live Updates: Police detain farmers at Ghazipur border; ‘protest to intensify if demands not met’

As more protesters from across the states arrived in Delhi to join the protest at Jantar Mantar Monday, the Delhi Police detained some farmers at the Ghazipur border to “control the crowd”. The farmers will be taken to Madhu Vihar and other police stations.

Farm unions will convene a mahapanchayat to discuss the future course of action regarding their demands which include a legal guarantee for MSP, sacking of MoS Ajay Teni in view of his son’s connection with the Lakhimpur Kheri violence and more. Farmers’ leader Baldev Singh Sirsa said, “Our demands are met only through agitation, why is that? If the government does not meet the demands, protest will be intensified.”

In other news, Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia alleged in a tweet on Monday that he had received a message from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to “break AAP’ and join BJP to get the CBI case against him closed. Sisodia is under probe in connection with the Delhi excise policy. Sisodia added his response to the BJP: “I will cut off my head but will not bow down in front of the corrupt conspirators.”
