This comes after the Supreme Court allowed the farmers' protest to be continued, as long as it "does not result in damage to the life and properties of other citizens"
New Delhi: Delhi Traffic Police on Friday announced the Delhi-Noida carriageway on Chilla border will be open for traffic but the other side will remain closed in the view of the protests by farmers, who have been camping on the borders of the national capital for 23 days now.
"PM should talk to the farmers and take back the farm laws. We will not give up our fight against these laws," said Dayal Singh, Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee.
The BJP has decided to defend the three farm laws strongly through an information campaign and mobilize farmers' support over it.
The saffron party will also run a coordinated campaign to counter the disinformation being spread on the farm laws by the opposition parties and some organisations.
This comes after the Supreme Court allowed the farmers' protest to be continued, as long as it "does not result in damage to the life and properties of other citizens". The apex court also suggested the constitution of a "committee, comprising of independent and impartial persons, including experts in the field of agriculture", to end the stalemate with the government.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will speak about the "beneficial provisions" of the new farm laws during his virtual address to the farmers of Madhya Pradesh on Friday as part of a state-level programme, a senior official said.
An official of the Madhya Pradesh Public Relations Department on Thursday said the PM would address the farmers in the state around 2 pm.
The MP government has organised a state-level 'Kisan Kalyan' event in Raisen district, wherein Chief Minister Shivraj Singh will transfer the relief amount of Rs 1,600 crore into the bank accounts of nearly 35.50 lakh farmers for the damaged kharif crops, the official said.
