The Delhi Police detained Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief Sukhbir Singh Badal, party leader Harsimrat Kaur Badal and 11 others for holding a protest march in the city on Friday without taking prior permission from the authorities.

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), under the leadership of its president Sukhbir Singh Badal, is observing September 17 as “black day” as it marks one year since the enactment of the Narendra Modi’s government’s controversial farm legislation.

The party had given a call to take out the march starting from Gurdwara Talab Ganj Sahib to the Parliament house against the three farm laws brought by the central government last year.

The SAD also called on farmers and supporters from Punjab to turn up in Delhi and take out a protest march to demand a repeal of the three laws.

Massive traffic jams hit parts of the national capital, including Lutyens’ Delhi and ITO, on Friday amid a protest march. Barricades were put in place at several locations in the capital, prompting SAD supporters to raise slogans against the police and the government. Vehicular movement was also hit at Jhandewalan-Panchkuian road.

The three agricultural laws, which the farmers have been protesting against for several months now, were passed in Parliament on September 17, 2020.
