Traffic movement hampered as farmers block NH-24 at Ghazipur

New Delhi, Dec 8 : Vehicular traffic was hampered on Tuesday morning as hundreds of farmers from Uttarakhand and western Uttar Pradesh held a sit-in at Ghazipur entry point on the National Highway-24 that connects Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, as part of their ‘Bharat Bandh’ call.

The protestors, however, were allowing the smooth passage for ambulances at Ghazipur, where they have been protesting for many days now. The farmers had earlier announced a total ‘chakka jam’ from 11 am to 3 pm.

Police and paramilitary forces were stationed on the Delhi side of the interstate border to maintain law and order. However, farmers were protesting peacefully.

Another group of protestors also blocked National Highway-9.
