It was a day of utter chaos and heavy traffic jams for the people of Ludhiana as a protest over FDI was held in the central point of the city, Bharat Nagar Chowk, on Tuesday.
On a call given by the central trade unions in their convention held at Talkatora stadium in Delhi on September 4 this year, the All India Trade Union Congress organised a massive protest rally and chakka jam at Bharat Nagar Chowk.
Holding red flags in hands and shouting slogans, a large number of women, construction workers, industrial workers, labourers, public health workers, contractual workers, corporation workers, university employees, private hospital employees, roadways and other sections of workers and employees took part in the protest.
Due to the protest and blocking of Bharat Nagar Chowk, the traffic police did not allow the vehicles to pass from Ferozepur road and diverted them from Malhar road and Pakhowal road due to which heavy traffic jams were witnessed. More so, on the road from Hero Bakery point to Bhai Wala Chowk, there were no traffic personnel on duty and vehicles from all directions converged causing extreme inconvenience. Work on roads going on in opposite Aggar Nagar added to the traffic problem.
