A massive march of farmers seek to enter the national capital from Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday to press for their 15-point charter of demands even as police, anticipating trouble, have set up heavy barricading on the borders and imposed prohibitory orders across east and northeast Delhi to stop them.

Delhi police have imposed prohibitory orders in the areas bordering Uttar Pradesh anticipating law and order problems. Meanwhile commuters in east Delhi as well as Noida and Ghaziabad are likely to face a harrowing time on the roads with traffic jams and chaos.

Areas such as Preet Vihar, Jagatpuri, Shakarpur, Madhu Vihar, Ghazipur, Mayur Vihar, Mandawli, Pandav Nagar, Kalyanpuri and New Ashok Nagar police station limits were worst affected.

Delhi Traffic Police have also warned commuters that traffic is likely to be thrown out of gear in south Delhi.
