The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has called for a demonstration in Delhi on Monday, October 12, to show solidarity for farmers who have been protesting recently passed agricultural legislation. Participants are scheduled to gather at the Jantar Mantar from 11:00 (local time).
A heightened security presence and associated disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the protest.
Demonstrations have been ongoing since the government introduced three agricultural ordinances in June; two of the three pieces of legislation were passed through the upper house of the Indian Parliament on Sunday, September 20, and were later given assent by the President, Ram Nath Kovind.
Those in Delhi are advised to avoid any protests as a precaution, monitor the situation, allow ample travel time, and obey instructions issued by local authorities.
