By 10th July 2017 0 Comments


Haryana’s main opposition Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) on Monday began its protest over the issue of the Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) canal by blocking roads, including in Ambala and Sirsa districts, disrupting movement of vehicles entering Haryana from Punjab.
Led by senior leaders, INLD activists have started to gather at various protest points in Haryana including in Ambala and Sirsa districts which lie close to the state’s border with Punjab.

They squatted on roads, placed tyres and even parked their own vehicles and tractors to stop vehicular movement causing inconvenience to thousands of commuters.
Party activists forced closure of the Shambhu toll plaza near the Ambala-Shambhu border disrupting movement of traffic, following which Rapid Action Force personnel have been deployed at the site.

In the wake of the INLD’s protest, Punjab’s Pepsu Road Transport Corporation and Punjab Roadways have decided not to ply its Haryana and Delhi-bound buses.
The party has said their protest would be peaceful, but barring emergency services like ambulances, they will not allow any other vehicle from Punjab to enter Haryana.
According to officials, traffic diversions have been effected at various points in view of the protest.
Sufficient security arrangements have been made to deal with the situation and to ease the inconvenience that common people have to face, Haryana DGP B S Sandhu, who has been in constant touch with his Punjab counterparts, said.
