Slow Traffic Expected due to Farmers’ Protest on Noida-Delhi Routes

Police on Wednesday cautioned commuters about the possibility of traffic movement slowing down on the Noida-Delhi routes on Thursday in view of a proposed farmers’ protest in the national capital.

The Gautam Buddh Nagar police also said diversions could be placed at routes in Noida near Delhi borders, where “intensive” checking of vehicles would be carried out before allowing them passage towards the national capital.

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of farmers’ groups, has announced a ‘Kisan Mazdoor Mahapanchayat’ at the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi, where a resolution will be passed to “intensify the fight” against the policies of the Central government. Farmers’ groups from western Uttar Pradesh are also likely to participate in the programme.

The Delhi Police has also permitted the farmers’ congregation with a condition that the gathering will neither have more than 5,000 participants, nor will tractor trolleys be allowed near the venue, according to officials.
