Noida Police on Thursday stepped up security along its borders with Delhi in view of the farmers' march to the Parliament. According to the Noida police officials, traffic has slowed at various routes, including the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway and DND because of the protest. Besides, barriers have been installed at all borders of Delhi in view of the protest by farmers. Senior officials and other personnel are present at various locations to control the traffic.

Notably, the Gautam Buddh Nagar Police has already imposed CrPC section 144 today.

The police also issued a traffic advisory, cautioning the commuters against diversions on some routes in the twin cities in view of the farmers' movement on tractors.

"In view of the farmers' movement, barriers are being installed at all the borders of Delhi and at Kisan Chowk and other places. Each vehicle is being checked and passed due to which the traffic is moving slowly," a police spokesperson said. "The traffic is being monitored continuously", he added.

The farmers led by the Bharatiya Kisan Parishad (BKP) are proposed to assemble at the Mahamaya Flyover in Noida at 12.30 pm today.

"From Mahamaya Flyover, the farmers shall march towards the Parliament in Delhi to press for our long-pending demands," BKP leader Sukhbir Yadav 'Khalifa' said.

Why farmers protesting?

The farmers groups in Noida and Greater Noida have been in protest since December 2023, with demands for hiked compensation and developed plots against their land acquired by the local development authorities in the past.

The group of farmers under Sanyukt Kisan Morcha and Akhil Bharatiya Kisan Sabha are demanding 10% of abadi land.

Farmers from more than 40 villages have been camping in Noida over the last five months. They have been squatting outside the Noida Authority's Sector 6 office for two months.
