Traffic eases at Delhi border after farmers’ Bharat Bandh

New Delhi: Traffic jams began easing at the Delhi border on Monday after farmer organisations began relaxing a “Bharat Bandh” called as part of their long protest seeking withdrawal of three farm laws that they allege will hurt them and help private firms.

This morning, Delhi-Meerut Expressway was blocked near the Ghazipur protest site, affecting the traffic coming from Uttar Pradesh. Huge traffic jams were seen at Delhi’s borders with Gurgaon and Noida as vehicles entering the national capital were checked by Delhi Police and paramilitary jawans. The Shambhu border between Punjab and Haryana was blocked too.
