Massive Traffic Jam On Delhi Gurugram Expressway Due To Bharat Bandh

Bharat Bandh Agnipath Scheme: Traffic has been disrupted at the Delhi-Gurugram expressway.

New Delhi:

The Delhi-Gurugram Expressway on Wednesday saw heavy traffic jams today following a call for Bharat Bandh against the military recruitment scheme- Agnipath- by some organisations.

A massive pile-up was seen on the expressway near the Sarhaul border as Delhi Police checked vehicles. The organisations have demanded a rollback of the scheme.

Opposition parties, including Congress and Aam Aadmi Party, will stage protests against the Agnipath scheme at Jantar Mantar in Delhi today. In Faridabad and Noida, prohibitory orders have been imposed that prohibit the assembly of four or more persons.

Protests erupted in several states since Wednesday against the Centre’s Agnipath scheme for the recruitment of soldiers between 17.5 and 21 years in the armed forces for a four-year period, followed by compulsory retirement for most without gratuity and pension benefits.
