Expect heavy traffic in south Mumbai in the evening, as farmers’ leader and MP Raju Shetty will walk from Bhoiwada to Raj Bhavan.

Hundreds of farmers, part of farmers’ outfit Swabhimani Sangathna that started a march at Kolhapur, will end the protest at Raj Bhavan today, said Mumbai traffic police officials.

The rally will start from Shirodkar school grounds, where the farmers stayed on Monday night.

They will march through the Khada Parsi junction, Mumbai Central, DB Marg, Opera House, Girgaum Chowpatty and then to Rajbhavan via Walkeshwar Road.

The Mumbai traffic police along with the local police station personnel will monitor the traffic situation.

The traffic police have advised motorists to plan their travel in advance

Swabhimani Shetkari Sangathana had supported the BJP through its political arm Swabhimani Paksha in 2014.

There seems to be a rift in the alliance, with Shetty organising a rally to protest against the BJP government for their anti-farmer policies.
