BH CORRESPONDENT, New Delhi: After 70 days, a road in South-East Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh connecting Delhi-Noida, and Faridabad in Haryana was reopened on Saturday. This came two days after Supreme Court-appointed mediators — senior advocates Sadhna Ramchandran and Sanjay Hegde — had a dialogue with Shaheen Bagh demonstrators. However, no such solution came up during their conversation regarding the Shaheen Bagh protest site.
After the barricades were removed, the Delhi police personnel, who have been deployed at Shaheen Bagh since the protests began, are currently monitoring the traffic.
According to reports, protestors didn’t have any conversation with the police regarding the reopening of the road. Police have also said that they have no information about this new development. After the road was opened, they monitored traffic.
On the day of meeting with interlocutors, Shaheen Bagh protestors were very firm with their decision that they will not move until the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and NRC are rolled back. This sudden decision came out as a huge relief for the commuters but there hasn’t been given any official statement from Shaheen Bagh’s side.
A similar incident happened earlier when a group of people opened the road and later another group closed the barricades.
