                      Trade union rally throws traffic out of gear in Delhi

A massive rally by trade unions demanding a change in economic and labour policies today threw traffic out of gear in the national capital causing inconvenience to a large number of people.
Traffic on roads leading to Connaught Place and Parliament Street was badly affected from 11 am as portions of main streets like Ashoka Road were closed for vehicular movement.
Vehicles were choc-a-bloc on Feroze Shah Road, Kasturba Gandhi Marg, Madhavrao Scindia Road and Minto Road besides others. Parliament Street was closed from Patel Chowk towards Jantar Mantar.
Connaught Place, JLN Marg, Tilak Marg, Rajghat, Mandi House, Delhi Gate, Asaf Ali Marg, Netaji Subash Marg, Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, Mathura Road, Bara Khamba and Sikandara Road were the other areas which saw massive traffic jams.
To reduce traffic congestion, goods vehicles were diverted at various points. Depending on traffic conditions, buses and private vehicles were also diverted.
