New Delhi, Jan 21 : Appealing to antiCitizenship (Amendment) Act protesters at Shaheen Bagh to call off their agitation in view of continued inconvenience to school children, patients and daily commuters due to blockade of road, Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Tuesday assured the protesters to convey their concerns to appropriate authorities.
Baijal met a delegation of protestors from Shaheen Bagh, who are sitting there since past 36 days over the enactment of Citizenship (Amendment) Act, which they alleged is "unconstitutional" and against a specific community. "Met the delegation of protestors from Shaheen Bagh," Baijal said in a tweet, adding that he once again requests them to maintain peace and order.
Earlier on Monday, Delhi police had appealed to the protesters to clear the blockade of Road Number 13A as children were inconvenienced while going to school.
"We have already appealed to you once before. Meanwhile, more complaints have been received regarding inconvenience due to blockade of Road No 13A, particularly to school children who are facing extreme hardship in reaching their schools, coaching centres and private tuition," Delhi Police had said in a tweet.
A carriageway connecting with Noida has been blocked by the protesters, forcing the police to close all traffic towards Noida and Delhi. (UNI)
