Farmers Protest| Panchkula Seals Borders with Punjab

‘Delhi Chalo’ call by agitating farmers of Punjab and Haryana on November 26 has forced the Panchkula administration to take strict measures to avoid any nuisance in the district. 

The district administration on Tuesday ordered the following: 

  • Seal all Punjab borders from Wednesday onwards: The borders adjacent to Punjab will be sealed from Wednesday morning and inter-state blockades are being established. 
  • Inter-state checkposts to keep a check on movement. 
  • District police force and duty megistrates are tasked to monitor the situation round the clock. 
  • Main highways will be closed for traffic access, alternative routes will be provided to citizens for smooth movement of traffic instead. 

All government officials are ordered to remain present in their offices from November 25 to 27. “If any officer or employee disobeys the above orders, then action will be taken as per rules,” said a press statement by the district. Officers have also been asked to keep their phones on at all times.
