Farmers’ Protest: Traffic Congestion At Delhi-Gurugram Border

New Delhi: Thousands of farmers continued their stir against the Centre’s new farm laws at the Delhi-Haryana border for the fifth day, even as the number of those protesting at the Ghazipur border swelled on Monday, leading police to place concrete barriers and enhancing security at the border point connecting with UP.

Security was stepped up after farmers threatened to block more highways connecting the national capital.

Peaceful protests were underway at both the Singhu and Tikri borders with no untoward incident reported for the last two days, but the numbers of farmers at the Ghazipur border swelled, with more their counterparts from the state joining them.

Rejecting the Centre’s offer to hold talks once they move to the Burari ground, the farmers protesting at all Delhi border points said they will not accept any conditional dialogue and have called a meeting to discuss their next course of action later in the day.

Farmers, who had reached Nirankarai Samagam Ground in Burari on Saturday, continued their protest there.

A Delhi Police officer said the situation at the Ghazipur border near UP Gate remained peaceful.

He said, “Cement jersey barriers have been placed to prevent the protesting farmers from entering the national capital.

“The protestors do not wish to go to Burari ground and want to carry out their protest at Jantar Mantar,” he said.

However, the Delhi-Ghaziabad border has not been sealed, police said.

Traffic continued to be disrupted in the national capital due to the protests.

Taking to twitter, the Delhi Traffic Police on Monday alerted commuters to take an alternate route since Singhu and Tikri borders continued to remain closed.

“Singhu Border is still closed from both sides. Please take alternate route.Traffic has been diverted from Mukarba Chowk & GTK road.Traffic is very very heavy. Please avoid outer ring road from signature bridge to Rohini & vice versa, GTK road, NH 44 & Singhu borders,” it tweeted.

In another tweet, it said, “Tikri border is closed for any Traffic Movement. Available Open Borders to Haryana are following Borders Jharoda, Dhansa, Daurala Jhatikera, Badusari, Kapashera, Rajokri NH 8, Bijwasan/Bajghera, Palam Vihar and Dundahera borders.”
