Even as groups of farmers descended on Tikri and Singhu borders of Delhi to protest against the farm laws for the second day in a row, the situation at the Gurgaon-Delhi border and within Gurgaon district remained calm.

In the absence of protesters in the district, and with security already beefed up since Thursday, the only impact visible of the protests on the district was in the movement of vehicles at the border areas. At the Sirhaul toll plaza, for example, barricades were placed across the carriageway, with police personnel checking every vehicle that passed through, allowing movement in only a single lane through the morning. An ambulance and a fire brigade were on standby in addition to the police personnel maintaining a watch in the area.
