With regard to the Shaheen bagh protest, the court had also allowed for the protests to take place only in designated areas in October. The protesting farmers had proceeded to the Burari ground as their demand for conducting the protest in Ramlila ground was dismissed by the police. 

The Chief Minister of Punjab believes that protesting in the national capital should encourage the government to initiate discussions and get the problems of the farmers resolved. “I welcome the centre’s decision of allowing the farmers to exercise their democratic right to protest”. 

The Delhi police had even used tear gas shells and water cannons to breakthrough the protest of the farmers marching to Delhi in the Delhi Chalo march in the Singhu area. The police had later deployed more forces and had to resort to the use of cannons, sand trucks and gas shells to stop them from entering the capital. The police have also shut the traffic movement in the Singhu and Tikri area, additionally, the metro services have also been shut down.
