On January 26, metro services were shut all across central, north and west Delhi yesterday after the farmers’ protest in the national capital turned rogue. On Wednesday as well, many routes were shut by the Delhi Police which led to traffic congestion in many areas of Delhi.
Ghazipur Mandi, NH-9 and NH-24 were closed for traffic movement. People commuting from Delhi to Ghaziabad were asked to take Shahdara, Karkari Mor and Delhi–Noida Direct Flyway. The route from Minto Road to Connaught Place was also closed.
On Tuesday, traffic went haywire on national capital roads as the tractor parade taken out by farmers spilled into many parts of the city and reached Central Delhi’s ITO and Red Fort areas despite police raising barricades and checkpoints at multiple places.
