The protest is going on at the UP Gate since November 28 in protest against all the three agricultural laws.The protesters have occupied National Highway-9, Delhi-Meerut Expressway, Sampark Marg and under flyovers by putting up tents here.Brick-cement masonry has been done under the tents.By installing toilets at different places, it has been connected to the drainage line of the highway.Due to this, the drainage system of the highway has completely collapsed.
Rainwater is not coming out.Water is filling on the highway itself.On Friday night and Saturday, due to the rain during the day, water was filled up to knees here.Beds, rations, etc. kept in tents got wet.It was all due to the protesters' own fault.Had the protesters not disturbed the drainage system of the highway, the water would have flowed.There is no water logging.
