Chaos prevailed for an hour on Sunday when the CM visited the city.  She landed at the City Centre helipad around 11.15am and left around noon.


An area of around 2km around City Centre was blocked for traffic. Near the Sector 50 crossing, motorists clashed with traffic policemen.

Commuters looked bewildered as vehicles were diverted to other roads. The entry to Sector 39 road leading to the police station and the district hospital was blocked. Traffic was diverted towards Noida-Dadri road. Residents of Sector 40, 41, 50, 49 and 51 had to take alternative routes to reach offices.

At City Centre Metro station, for 15 minutes, Metro commuters remained stranded as they could not get an auto or a cycle-rickshaw.
