Delhi Metro Gates Closed Amid AAP Protests; These Stations Will Remain Shut

Delhi Metro Gates Closed Amid AAP Protests; These Stations Will Remain Shut

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation announced on Tuesday that some of the metro station gates will remain closed until further notice due to the Aam Aadmi Party’s call to ‘gherao’ at Prime Minister Modi’s residence against the arrest of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Delhi police have increased security at PM Modi‘s residence. It has also imposed section 144 of the CRPF around the residence. In various parts of the capital city, the police have barricaded the area for security concerns.

According to a Delhi Traffic Police official, there may be disruptions in traffic movement in certain areas of New Delhi and Central Delhi due to the ongoing protest. A Delhi Police officer told PTI, “Robust security arrangements have been made. We have installed layers of security to maintain law and order in the area. Section 144 (of the CrPC) is already imposed around the prime minister’s residence, and no one will be allowed to protest.”

According to the DMRC, Lok Kalyan Marg Metro Station, Gate No. 3 of Patel Chowk Metro Station, and Gate No. 5 of the Central Secretariat will remain shut until further notice amid the ongoing protest and security concerns.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, Devesh Kumar Mahla, stated that no permission was granted to the party to conduct the protest. There will be no restrictions on boarding and deboarding at the metro stations, and 50 patrolling vehicles are present in the city in view of the protest. 

The Enforcement Directorate detained Arvind Kejriwal on March 21 in connection with the liquor policy case. Due to the arrest of the AAP leader, party members launched campaigns and protests against the PM Modi-led central government and probe agencies, including the CBI and Enforcement Directorate.

The Bhartiya Janata Party has also asked for the resignation of Arvind Kejriwal from the post of Delhi Chief Minister.
