Event

A farmers trade union demonstration in New Delhi on Tuesday, December 1, has caused traffic congestion in areas north and west of the city.

The closure of the borders has also resulted in heavy traffic on alternative routes, including the Badusarai and Jhatikara borders between New Delhi and Haryana.
