The Quint visited the Ghazipur border protest site, amid reports of farmers leaving the site, in view of the Supreme Court's observation, which stated that "farmers have the right to protest but they cannot keep roads blocked indefinitely".
A farmer protester from UP's Bulandshahr, Raju Pradhan Khedi, told The Quint, "No tents were removed, the route has already been open. Farmers have not blocked any roads. The barricading done by Delhi police is as it is. Tikaitji showed in a video that it is the Delhi police who have blocked the way."
Meanwhile, “Modi Sarkar Rasta Kholo” was written on police barricades.
Farmers claimed that the police has barricaded the routes to stop farmers from entering Delhi. They said that they are not leaving Ghazipur until their demands of repealing the three contentious farm laws are met.
Farmers protesting against the farm laws introduced by the Centre had gathered at the borders of the national capital in November 2020, and have been obstructing the highways as part of their resistance since then.
