New Delhi. The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has now taken a tough stand in view of the problems being faced by the common people due to the road blockade due to the farmers’ agitation against the agriculture law of the Central Government. The NHRC has issued notices to the Central Government as well as Delhi, Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and other authorities seeking a report on the farmers’ agitation. The NHRC said that it has received several complaints regarding the farmers’ agitation.
According to these complaints received by the Human Rights Commission, more than 9000 small and medium companies have been harmed by the Kisan Andolon. Apart from these industrial units, the traffic has also reportedly been affected, causing loss to commuters, patients, physically challenged people and senior citizens due to the heavy rush on the roads.
There are also reports that due to farmers’ agitation, people have to travel long distances to reach their destinations and barricades are put up at the borders, the statement said. The commission has issued notices to the chief secretaries of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan. Along with this, notices have been issued to the Director Generals of Police of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Delhi Police Commissioner asking them to report the action related to them. It is also alleged that the farmers are violating the corona protocol at the protest site and due to the blockade of roads, the local people living there are also facing trouble in coming out of their homes. Since human rights issues are also included in the movement, the right to agitate peacefully is also being taken care of. The commission needs to focus on different human rights issues.
