New Delhi, Dec 2, 2020-
After the first round of talks between the government and the farmer leaders remained inconclusive a day ago, the agitation against the new farm laws entered its seventh day across various borders of the national capital on Wednesday.
Chilla border separating the national capital from Noida in Uttar Pradesh, is the latest addition to the list of borders which have been blocked by the farmers in order to protest against the central laws.
Unlike the farmers of Punjab and Haryana, who are protesting at the Singhu and Tikri Borders, the farmers at Chilla have come in cars and big SUVs instead of trucks and trollies.
Senior IPS officers of the Noida Police met the farmers and requested them to open one side of the road and restrict their protests to one side only so that movement of traffic could resume after severe bottlenecks earlier.
Following a discussion with fellow leaders at the gathering, Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Bhanu Pratap Songh agreed to the proposal.
The traffic movement in the area is slowly returning to normal. (Agency)
