Rohtak/Jhajjar, February 12

Fortifying security at Tikri-Bahadurgarh border, the Delhi Police have installed CCTV cameras at metro pillars and pitched a tent for personnel to conduct round-the-clock surveillance.

Paramilitary forces and Delhi Police personnel have been deployed at the borders. Barbed wire-fitted barricades, concrete blocks and containers have been put up at Tikri, Najafgarh and Dhansa borders to seal them to prevent the entry of farmers. The borders connect Haryana with Delhi in Jhajjar district.

The Rohtak and Jhajjar police, too, have made elaborate security arrangements. Spike strips and 6-ft-high concrete blocks have been placed on the highway at the Rohtak-Jind border near Lakhan Majra village.

“One side of the highway at the border has been blocked while the other side has been left open for vehicular movement. It will also be sealed tomorrow, if required,” said a police official, adding that nakas had been set up on internal roads following information that the protesters could use these routes to reach Delhi.

“Five companies of the Rapid Action Force, with 35 personnel each, have been deployed on the Jind border as this is the main highway that leads to Delhi from Jind via Rohtak and Jhajjar,” he said. In Jhajjar, the police have started barricading the Sector 9 turn in Bahadurgarh, and a plan has been chalked out to divert traffic so that commuters are not inconvenienced.

March on track

One person in every village has been given the task to mobilise support and make preparations for the march. We are working on a strategy to reach Delhi at any cost. Some leaders have shifted to unknown places to evade action, while others are awaiting a nod before proceeding towards Delhi. — A senior farm leader
