In a significant development, the Haryana Government has decided to revoke the imposition of the National Security Act (NSA), 1980 against several union leaders in the Ambala district. The decision came after a late-night announcement, and it marks a notable shift in the ongoing farmer protests.

Background

The NSA had been invoked against farmer leaders due to their daily attempts to break barricades at the Shambhu border. However, following reconsideration, the authorities have decided not to enforce the NSA on the farm leaders.

Clarification from IGP Ambala Range

Sibash Kabiraj, IGP Ambala Range, clarified the situation, stating, “This is to clarify to all concerned that the matter of invoking provisions of the National Security Act on a few farm union leaders of district Ambala has been reconsidered, and it has been decided that the same will not be invoked.”

Appeal for Cooperation

The police have appealed to the farmers and their leaders to maintain peace and cooperate with the authorities in maintaining law and order. The decision to revoke the NSA reflects an effort to find a more amicable resolution to the ongoing protests.

Damage to Property and Legal Measures in Haryana

Earlier, the Haryana government had invoked the NSA against farmer leaders, seeking details of property loss in Ambala district. The administration warned that if agitators caused damage to government and private property, they would compensate the loss by seizing their property and bank accounts.

It permits the central or state government to detain individuals if there is reason to believe that they may engage in acts threatening national security.
