Gurugram, May 14 (Delhi Crown): Traffic movement on the National Highway-48, or Delhi-Jaipur Highway, would be disrupted on May 15 (Sunday) due to a proposed march by thousands of protesters demanding “Ahir Regiment”, confirmed the city’s Police Commissioner Kala Ramachandran on Saturday.
This would be the second occasion, in past few weeks, when the Gurugram Police would be struggling to ensure a smooth traffic movement due to the protests for the Ahir Regiment.
Nearly a month ago, the traffic movement on the national highway remained disrupted for a day even as members of the Yadav community organised a protest march on the highway demanding setting up of Ahir Regiment acknowledging the valour shown by their community while fighting the enemies at the borders all these years.
Relay protests by both men and women have been continuing near the Kherki Daula Toll Plaza since February 4, with senior leaders of key political parties committing their support for demand for setting up the Ahir Regiment.
On the other hand, the Centre is stuck to its oft-repeated stance that no more regiment(s) in defence forces would be set up on the basis of any caste or community.
On Saturday the Gurugram Police issued a traffic advisory in view of the protest march scheduled for May 15 (Sunday), according to which the commuters in light vehicles from Jaipur side have been advised to take a left turn from IMT Manesar Chowk and they can reach their destination via Pataudi-Gurgaon Road.
Those coming in light vehicles from Delhi side are advised to take alternate route via Golf Course Road (Cyber City) to Golf Course Extension Road to Vatika Chowk (Badshahpur) to SPR Road and connect to NH-48.
For all Heavy/Goods vehicles from Jaipur side it is advised that they take KMP from Pachgaon to go to Delhi as well as Faridabad.
“Please plan your travel accordingly. Our traffic officials will be present on every spot to assist and to ensure smooth flow of traffic movement,” said Gurugram CP Kala Ramachandran on Saturday.
