Police closed many border points in view of farmer protest and that led to traffic crisis. Delhi Traffic Poilice said, Dhnasa and Jharoda Kalan borders were restricted for traffic movement as the demonstrators and commuters were asked to take an alternative route.
The farmer protest is against the government’s new farm laws. Central Government passed three new bills for a possibility of selling their products directly to private buyers and to sign contracts with private companies. The new farm law is in views to increase the private sector investments.
The Congress party leader, Rahul Gandhi said Modi government is “making farmers slaves” of the capitalists.
