If the Delhi Police remove these barricades, then the opening of the Delhi-Rohtak road can get rid of the problems being faced in everyday traffic. At the same time, in the next 2 to 3 days, it is expected that the police will remove them and the vehicles will start running on these roads again.
A meeting called between authorities from Haryana and the Delhi Police, which reports to the central government - both controlled by the BJP - finally resulted in an agreement which has now led to the barricades being cleared by earthmovers and bulldozers.
