New Delhi: Delhi BJP workers on Monday staged “chakka jam” protests against the city government’s new excise policy and blocked roads at various places in the national capital, including the Akshardham temple.
The protest near Akshardham Temple was led by Delhi BJP President Adesh Gupta.
Gupta told reporters, “The Delhi government is opening liquor shops illegally across the city under its new excise policy. Shops are being opened near residential and religious places. Our protest will continue till the new Liquor policy is not withdrawn.”
People faced heavy traffic due to the protest near Akshardham Temple.
A passenger stranded on National Highway 24 said, “There is heavy traffic jam on NH-24. Most of the roads are blocked by protesters and this is causing inconvenience to people like us, who need to reach office on time.” Asked about the inconvenience being faced by commuters due to the protest, Gupta claimed that it is a public movement and people are ready to bear it to get rid of the new product policy of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government. Huh.
Other places where “chakka jam” protests are being held include the car market on Vikas Marg, Dayaram Chowk and Civil Lines.
The protesters raised slogans against the city government and its new excise policy.
He repeatedly declared that all emergency vehicles should be given way and there should be no damage to public property.
