As this protest has started Delhi people are facing many things, whether students or people doing jobs or are running their own businesses. Due to all this mess, one can not able to go anywhere outside Delhi but this is also affecting their jobs or businesses. Also, because of heavy traffic jams, everyone is reaching their workplace late and this is affecting their income.
So, now we’ll discuss how all this started! At first, the government thought it would be a wiser decision to close and shut the metro as people won’t have any way of transportation to reach the protest spot joining them. They considered the situation further will be handled easily but if the crowd will start increasing it would going to be so difficult to handle them. So, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation decided to close 19 gates of Metro in view of protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act but later opened five from them. Entry and Exit gates of Delhi Gate and Janpath are closed and the train is not going to halt at Barakhamba metro station.
DMRC last tweeted that all entry and exit gates of Rajiv Chowk, Vishwavidyalaya, Patel Chowk, Central Secretariat, Udyog Bhawan, and Lok Kalyan Marg are open for now while entry and exit gates of ITO, Pragati Maidan, Khan Market, Vasant Vihar, and Mandi House are closed. DMRC informed about the closure of these metro stations in a tweet.
Earlier, entry and exit gates of seven metro stations were closed today in view of the Citizenship Act protest. “Entry and exit gates of Lal Quila, Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk and Vishwavidyalaya are closed. Trains will not be halting at these stations,” the DMRC tweeted. Gates of Jamia Millia Islamia, Jasola Vihar Shaheen Bagh, and Munirka were also closed.
Trains will not be halting at these stations. “Entry and exit gates of Jamia Millia Islamia, Jasola Vihar Shaheen Bagh and Munirka are closed. Trains will not be halting at these stations,” DMRC further tweeted. On the borders of Delhi, the police enforce very strictly even they are saying that it would be bad if you step out of this line. The condition is now going better and we are wishing that it will be soon finished.
