Delhi Metro to shut three yellow line stations today in view of farmers’ protest


New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Friday (June 25, 2021) issued a notification stating that three Yellow Line Metro stations namely, Vishwavidyalaya, Civil Lines and Vidhan Sabha will remain closed for the public from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday (June 26, 2021) as advised by Delhi Police in view of security reasons.

The announcement by the Delhi metro comes in the view of a protest march called by farmers on June 26. Earlier, Sanyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) leader Yogendra Yadav on Thursday had said that they will hold a protest march across the nation on June 26 to mark the completion of seven months of the farm agitation against the Centre’s three farm laws.

A spokesperson of the Bhartiya Kisan Union told PTI that, “Farmers are gathering again in large numbers at the Ghazipur border” in a show of strength. 

Farmers have been protesting since November 25, seeking repealing of the three central farm laws.
