New Delhi: The situation remained tense at Patiala-Ambala highway as thousands of farmers, protesting against the Centre’s farm laws, threw barricades erected by Haryana police to force their way into the national capital.

Police were forced to use tear gas shells and water cannons following which farmers retreated temporarily, but came back in larger numbers to clash with the police.

A day ahead of farmers’ slated protest march to Delhi against the Centre’s farm laws, Haryana on Wednesday heavily barricaded its borders with Punjab and suspended its bus service to the neighbouring state in a bid to foil the march. Bus services between Haryana and Punjab have been suspended in view of the farmers’ “Delhi Chalo” call.

Delhi Metro on Wednesday said its services to neighbouring cities of the national capital will remain suspended till 2 pm today in view of a planned protest march by farmers against Centre’s new farm laws.

In a late evening statement, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said no metro services will be available from Anand Vihar to Vaishali and New Ashok Nagar to Noida City Centre during this period.

The metro services will also be suspended between Sultanpur and Guru Dronacharya metro stations.
