Meanwhile, earlier in the day, farmer leader Yudhveer Singh and others who were sitting at Ghazipur border, had come to meet the LG.

Singh said that the farmers will submit a memorandum to the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, but they were not given any time. However, the Delhi Police kept all the farmers with them.

The farmers have alleged that their leaders have been held by the Delhi police and are being taken from one place to another, and were not allowed to meet the LG. After that Rakesh Tikait held a meeting at Ghazipur border.

Rakesh Tikait, after the meeting, said, "We have made it clear that either the farmers be allowed to meet the Lieutenant Governor or they should be sent to Tihar Jail. There will be no protest to get them released."

Meanwhile, in view of the sensitive situation in Delhi, the security of the Lieutenant Governor's residence has been beefed up. No one is being allowed to meet him.
