Farmers vacate Delhi’s Ghazipur border
India: After over a year, the Ghazipur border in Delhi, which was one of the epicentres of the farmers’ agitation against the three agri laws, has now been vacated. Famers camping at the Ghazipur border are going back to their home states, days after the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) suspended the protest following the repeal of three farm laws and the Centre agreeing to its other demands, including a panel for legal guarantee on MSP for crops and withdrawal of police cases registered against them.
The border was till recently home for thousands of agitators living in tents and having their meals at langars. The National Highway Authority of India has started working to open the road which was closed from one side for over a year.
