As their protest against the newly passed farm laws entered 27th day on Tuesday, farmers blocked the Ghazipur border (Uttar Pradesh) with tractors.
The traffic from Delhi towards Ghazipur and Ghaziabad on Delhi-Meerut Expressway was affected as both side’s carriageways were closed.

Traffic has been diverted from Nizammudin Khattha, Akshardham & Gazipur chowk for onward journey via Anand Vihar, Apsara, Bhopra & DND borders,” Additional CP Traffic, Outer Range, Delhi, tweeted.
