The deadlock between the government and the protesting farmers in Islamabad continues for the fifth day, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Sunday.

The farmers have said that the protest will continue until their demands are accepted.

Earlier, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said that the sit-in by Kisan Etihad was unjustified as all their demands had been heard and being considered.

Rana Sanaullah also said that the Kisan Etihad farmers had been informed about the proceedings.

“The cabinet has formed a committee which is working for the reduction of the electricity bills of agricultural tube wells. The government is taking farmers’ demands quite seriously,” he added.

The interior minister further said that the demand for deferring the tube well electricity bills had been accepted and notification had also been issued.

“Red Zone is the Red Line, and Kisan Etihad or no other group is allowed to protest in the Red Zone,” Rana Sana stated.

He also warned that law would come into action against any group that protested in the Red Zone. “The orders of the Supreme Court are very obvious. No protest will be held in Red Zone,” he added.
