New Delhi: The Gurugram-Delhi border on Monday saw a huge traffic jam as the Delhi Police have put barriers to keep a vigil in view of the Bharat Bandh called by protesting farmers. A heavy presence of security personnel was seen at the Delhi-Gurugram border. As per the latest updates, only two lanes from Jaipur towards Delhi are open for commuters entering the national capital. 

The Delhi Traffic Police has closed or diverted several routes due to the farmers’ protests.

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) has called a Bharat Bandh to mark one year of the enactment of the three farm laws that were passed in the Parliament in September 2020. A nationwide strike has started at 6 am and will go on till 4 pm, during which, the farmers have started blocking various state borders and national highways.

Earlier in the morning, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait had said that they have not sealed anything and just want to send a message. “We appeal to the shopkeepers to keep their shops closed for now and open only after 4 pm. No farmer is coming here from outside,” he added.
