Massive traffic jams are being witnessed due to ‘Bharat Bandh’ call given by some organizations to mark their protest against the Agnipath recruitment scheme of the Central government. This comes a day after Tri-service chiefs ruled out the withdrawal of scheme.
In various parts of Delhi-NCR, commuters faced heavy traffic jams including Delhi-Gurugram expressway as Delhi Police installed barricades at various checkpoints in wake of the Bharat Bandh against the Agnipath scheme.
Traffic department of both Gurugram and Delhi altered passengers about the congestion and cautioned them to avoid certain stretches.
A nationwide call for Bharat Bandh comes after five days of violent agitation in around 10 states.
