Ahead of the farmers' march to the national capital on February 13, Delhi Traffic Police has issued a traffic advisory and has imposed Section 144 on the borders across Delhi-NCR.

According to the latest update, there will be traffic diversions around the Singhu Border (Delhi-Haryana).

"Traffic restrictions and diversions will be imposed at Singhu Border from February 12 for commercial vehicles and from February 13 for all types of vehicles," the advisory said.

"Traffic from Delhi going to Ghaziabad through the Gazipur border may take Pushta Road in front of Akshardham temple or Patparganj Road/Mother Dairy Road or Chaudhary Charon Singh Marg ISBT Anand Vihar and exit from Maharajpur or Apsara border in UP Ghaziabad," it added.

Tikri Border will also witness the diversions.

"Heavy/Commercial Vehicles/Trucks going towards Bahadurgarh, Rohtak etc. via Rohtak Road are advised to use Najafgarh Nangloi Road from Nangloi Chowk to enter Haryana via Najafgarh Jharoda Border," the advisory read.

“Interstate Buses intending to go towards Sonipat, Panipat Karnal etc. via NH-44 will take ISBT to Majnu Ka Tilla to Signature Bridge to Khajuri Chowk to Loni Border to KMP via Khekra,” the advisory reads.

Additionally, the city police declared that Section 144 would be implemented in the Capital's Shahdara and Gandhi Nagar neighborhoods, essentially prohibiting big gatherings until March 11.

This decision is made in advance of the 'Delhi Chalo' march, which about 200 farmers' unions organized to demand a number of things, such as the removal of cases that had been brought against them during earlier protests and the creation of a separate law to guarantee the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for farm produce.
