Ahead of the planned farmers' march, border points such as Ghazipur, Singhu, and Tikri are heavily fortified to prevent farmers from entering Delhi. Concrete blocks and multiple layers of barricades line the highways, aimed at halting tractors and trollies. Barbed wires and nails have also been installed on the roads to impede movement.

Despite talks between farmers and government representatives, key demands, including a law guaranteeing minimum support price (MSP), remain unresolved. To manage traffic, authorities have restricted the entry of goods vehicles via the Greater Noida Expressway and barred travel between Sirsa in Haryana and Surajpur in Uttar Pradesh via Parichowk.
