New Delhi: As the farmers’ protest against the Centre’s farm laws continued on the second day, the key routes were closed between Noida and Delhi on Wednesday.
The Delhi traffic police advised the commuters to avoid the Chilla route and instead take the Delhi-Noida Direct (DND) or Kalindi Kunj route.
“The Chilla border on Noida-link road is closed for traffic due to farmers protests near Gautam Budh Dwar. People are advised to avoid Noida-link road for going to Noida and use NH-24 and DND instead for Noida,” Delhi Traffic Police tweeted.
On Tuesday evening, hundreds of farmers from Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) and other groups assembled at the UP border.
They were restricted to proceed towards Delhi to join farmers of Punjab and Haryana. There was a heavy deployment of police force at the border.
