Traffic disrupted in Indian capital as farmers continue protests

Protest in India

Traffic was disrupted in some parts of Delhi amidst heavy presence of cops to control the protesting farmers who tried to enter the national capital, on Wednesday.

The protesters came from some part of Delhi sharing borders with neighbouring states of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.

Thousands of farmers have congregated at various inter-state borders to carry out their protests against the three new laws recently formulated by the federal government. They have been stopped at areas bordering Delhi.

The protests have continued for over a week by farmers who demand roll back of the three laws, arguing that they are detrimental to their interests.

On Tuesday, various representatives of the protesting farmers held talks with the federal cabinet ministers in a bid to break the stalemate.

Both sides described the talks as successful and resolved to continue the dialogue on Thursday.

A senior Delhi Police cop confirmed to Xinhua over the phone that various inter-state borders have been shut for normal traffic, as commuters are advised to take alternate routes. (Xinhua/NAN)
