Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Tuesday that preventing a protest march of farmers from entering the national capital was “wrong” and pitched for allowing them entry into the city.
“Why are the farmers being stopped from entering Delhi. It is wrong. Delhi belongs to all. They should be given entry to Delhi. We support their demands,” he told reporters on the sidelines of an event held at the Delhi Assembly to mark Gandhi Jayanti.
Farmers marching towards Delhi as part of the Bharatiya Kisan Union’s (BKU) protest call over demands ranging from farm loan waiver to cut in fuel prices were stopped at the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border on Tuesday with police using water cannons to disperse them
