Chilla Border Near Noida Closed as Farmers' Protest Enters 7th Day

New Delhi, December 2: The Chilla border near Mayur Vihar on Noida-link road is closed for traffic as Farmers protest enters the seventh day of agitation.

The Delhi Traffic Police has advised commuters to avoid the area near Gautam Budh Dwar as farmers have gathered near Noida link road. People are advised to use NH-24 and DND instead while traveling to and from Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.

Meanwhile, Tikri border, Jharoda Border, Jhatikra Border are closed for any traffic movement. Badusarai Border is open only for two-wheeler traffic as per the Delhi Traffic Police.

On December 2, the Centre held a meeting with the representatives of the protesting farmers and offered to set up a committee to look into their demands, which they rejected.

After the meeting, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that the discussion was “good” and the fourth round of talks will be held on December 3. “We wanted a small group to be constituted but farmers’ leaders wanted that the talks should be held with everyone; we do not have a problem with it,” the minister said.

The government reportedly gave a detailed presentation to the farmers’ leaders on the Minimum Support Price and the Agricultural Produce Market Committee Act during the meeting, appealing to them to suspend their protest.
