In another traffic alert, the Delhi Police said that the NH-24 is now open for movement.
Following a day-long agitation, the Delhi Police late on Tuesday night opened the barricades at the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border allowing the entrance of farmers, who were stopped during `Kisan Kranti Padyatra`.
The `Kisan Kranti Padyatra`, which was started on September 23 by the Bharatiya Kisan Union, ended at the Kisan Ghat - the memorial of farmer leader Chaudhary Charan Singh - in the national capital in the wee hours of Wednesday.
The farmers are demanding loan waivers, reduction in electricity tariff and pension for those above 60 years of age.
