Delhi police are digging up large parts of the NH-44 to build rows of concrete barbed wire and putting strips of sharpened nails and iron bars in the middle of the street – the parts that aren’t – to stop farmers and their tractors are not allowed to enter the state capital.

The police have also erected massive shipping containers as temporary walls, stopped all traffic for several kilometers in all directions, and a huge force, including armed officers, used. Since last week they have also blocked and blocked media access to Internet services.

« The protest sites look like international borders. It’s as if we came from Pakistan. On the one hand, they (the government) want us talk, and on the other hand they are doing everything to decouple us (from) the city), « Kulwant Singh Sandhu, a peasant leader, told the PTI news agency.

In recent days this has been the norm along the border with Delhi become. Barbed wire barriers, iron bar strips and concrete walls keep peasants from entering the town.

Sections of NH-44 were excavated to place barbed wire barriers and now resemble a war zone.

Farmers have also claimed that water tankers have been blocked, but repeatedly that these « attacks » will not break their spirits. The Samyukt Kisan Morcha said: « … dig digging … repair nails … barbed wire fences … are all part of several attacks (by the government). »

These measures were taken by those who work and the farmers support the opposition, for which Congressman Rahul Gandhi has led the indictment.

Yesterday, Mr. Gandhi beat the government for « exterminating » the peasants, telling them to « build bridges, not walls ». Today he warned the government that farmers would not back down.
