The Indian Farmers’ Union said the lane of the Delhi-Meerut Expressway should be kept open so that visitors do not face any problems.
The lane from Delhi to Ghaziabad on the Delhi-Meerut Expressway was opened by the Delhi Police around 8 am on Tuesday. This lane was open at about one o’clock in the afternoon, and the traffic was heavy. The agitating farmers welcomed the inauguration of this lane. However, after one o’clock in the afternoon, the Delhi Police imposed barricading. Dharmendra Malik, media in-charge of the Indian Kisan Union, said the movement was equally demanding to the Delhi Police that the lanes of the Delhi-Meerut Expressway from Delhi to Ghaziabad, which were opened before January 2, should have been kept open so that visitors could have no problem. .
He said the movement had continued for two months and one-lane traffic had continued. Not only that, a lane on Platform Road was also kept open for ambulances, the lane leading to Delhi. However, after January 2, Delhi Police closed the Delhi-Meerut Expressway completely. People are having problems with it.
On Tuesday morning, Delhi Police opened the road from Delhi to Ghaziabad at the UP Gate border. The opening of this road at around one o’clock in the afternoon was a great relief for them to travel from Delhi to Ghaziabad, Meerut, Lalkuan, Dasna, Hapur. The road has been closed by Delhi Police since January 2. Due to this trains going to Ghaziabad, Meerut, Lalkuan, Dasna, Hapur had to leave from Anand Bihar or Apsara border, causing heavy traffic jam in the evening. People were wasting a lot of time on their way back to the office.
Dharmendra Malik said it was welcomed by the movement when the road was opened on Tuesday morning. However, at around one o’clock, the Delhi Police closed the road again. Explain that since November 26, farmers have been protesting at the UP Gate (Gazipur border) on the lane from Ghaziabad to Delhi over three new agricultural laws.
SP Traffic Ramananda Kushwaha said the lane of the Delhi-Meerut Expressway from Delhi to Ghaziabad was reopened by Delhi Police at 8 am on Tuesday and closed again at around 1.30 pm. At this time all types of vehicles from this lane go from Delhi to Ghaziabad. Ananda Bihar and Apsara felt relief at the border. Asked about the opening and closing, SP Traffic said it was a decision of the Delhi Police, Ghaziabad Police had no information about it.
