Farmers to block key stretch to mark 100 days of protest

To mark the 100th day of protest against the Centre’s farm laws, agitating farmers are slated to block the 135-km-long Western Peripheral Expressway, also known as Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway, from 11 am to till 4 pm today.

The step to block the expressway is a part of the strategy to intensify the ongoing protest.
Those protesting at Singhu border will reach Kundli and block the toll plazas falling on the way.

Besides this, farmers from Ghazipur and Tikri borders will block Dasna and Bahadurgarh toll plaza, respectively. Those sitting on the Shahjahanpur border will block the KMP Expressway touching Gurugram-Manesar.

Their plan of action includes freeing up the toll plazas from collecting fees. Farmers have also said that the toll plaza nearest to the border area will be blocked.
