Youth Congress protesters stopped on Haryana border
Youth Congress protesters stopped on Haryana border

Chandigarh, Sep 21 (TIWN) Hundreds of Youth Congress activists, led by party's Punjab unit President Sunil Jakhar, were stopped from heading towards Delhi at the Haryana border near Ambala on Sunday with the police using water cannons to disperse them.

The Youth Congress activists were going to Delhi through the Chandigarh-Delhi highway when they were stopped at the heavily barricaded entrance to Haryana by police.  The situation at the Haryana-Punjab border turned tense as the protesters remained adamant to continue their march towards the national capital.  Some activists tried to set a tractor on fire after the march was stopped.  The Haryana Police denied permission to the Youth Congress workers, saying they would not allow the traffic movement on the national highway to be disrupted and also cited the coronavirus restrictions.  After being denied permission to enter Haryana, the Youth Congress activists terminated their protest at the site.
