New Delhi, March 6 : Vehicular movement resumed on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway near the national capital after a five-hour peaceful blockade by farmers to mark the 100th day of protests against the three new farm laws on Saturday.
The farmers squatted on the roads and blocked the toll plazas at various points on the expressway from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. However, they ended it half an hour before the scheduled time.
During the five long hours, farmers registered their protest by raising slogans against the government and holding black placards. They also sang Haryanvi folk songs ‘Ragini’, drank sugared-water and ate packaged food in the scorching heat.
The Tricolour fluttered atop tractors and loud protest songs and speeches blared from the speakers as farmers sat on the expressway.
The agitation remained peaceful at all the places on the expressway. The move to block the expressway was symbolic and a part of the strategy to intensify the ongoing protest.
Commuters, however, faced problems because of the disruption as many of them did not know about the protest and were taken aback by it. Vehicles with children and women were allowed to move. At Dasna toll plaza on the e-way, four ambulances were allowed to pass.
