On 13 February 2024, police officers deployed tear gas canisters at farmers participating in the “Delhi Chalo” protest march as they attempted to dismantle barricades intended to stop the protesters near the city of Ambala in Haryana state, located approximately 190 km (120 mi) north of the capital New Delhi. Security personnel are manning roadblocks on multiple entry points to New Delhi in an effort to stop thousands of protesting farmers from entering the capital city. Mobile internet services in select districts of Haryana have been suspended. Security measures have been heightened around New Delhi, which includes a large police deployment in the city’s perimeter and a month-long prohibition on gatherings of more than five people. Farmers’ unions are organizing the march to New Delhi from the states of Haryana, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh, to demand better crop prices and the government’s minimum support price (MSP) for agricultural products.
