DELHI-NCR BORDER CLOSED: TRAFFIC SNARLS, UTTER CHAOS, STONE-PELTING ON DAY 3 OF LOCKDOWN 4.0
Delhi-Noida-Gurgaon borders were locked in April in the trail of the increasing numbers of Corona positive cases in Delhi. After Nizamuddin Markaz in Delhi came to be a hotspot of coronavirus infections, the border-sharing states supposed to end the activity across the borders, apart from important services. The network of issuing e-passes attended a massive process as well.
The Centre, in its approaches, has eased interstate border activity from May 18. But the decision to enforce the same rests on the local authorities, which led to unexpected chaos and mayhem at Delhi-Noida and Delhi-Gurgaon border, even after two days of lockdown.
On Wednesday morning, traffic walked at a snail’s pace along the Delhi-Noida border as many vehicles without this pass were made to return. A video of people hurling stones at police near Palam Vihar on the Delhi-Gurgaon border also emerged.
The topic of Delhi-Noida-Gurgaon border closure reached the corridors of the courts too as many families have been stranded because of the border sealing.
The Uttar Pradesh government initially authorized the movement. But the Noida administration denied approval. Haryana was banged by the Delhi High Court for entirely sealing the border. Later, it was emptied only for essential services.
