Keeping in view the farmers’ protest against Centre’s three farm laws on the borders of Delhi, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has decided to extend the deployment of 93 of 113 already present companies of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) in the national capital till March 15 for law and order duties.
Officials in the Ministry said the MHA has extended the deployment of 93 companies of CAPFs, including Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Border Security Force (BSF), Indo-Tibetan Border Force (ITBP), Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) and Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), in Delhi till March 15.
As of now, it has been decided to de-induct 20 companies of CAPFs on March 10 and a review would be conducted next week on the continuation of left out 93 companies, the officials said.
Farmers have been protesting on different borders of the national capital since November 26 last year against the three newly enacted farm laws – Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and farm Services Act 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020. The implementation of the three laws was, in January, put on hold by the Supreme Court.
