Several roads leading to and coming from almost all Delhi borders witnessed heavy traffic as cops created checkpoints and blockades to check the movement of farmers.

Which roads and routes you should avoid on Saturday:

All routes leading to Haryana and Uttar Pradesh borders as the Bhartiya Kisan Union protesters who are coming from Muzaffarnagar camped overnight at Daurala toll plaza at Meerut on Friday and are planning to resume their march today morning at 9 am towards Delhi. This means that Delhi borders are expected to be blocked by farmers from all sides.
