Noida, Aug 29: Members of Janhit Morcha and several Residents Welfare Associations (RWAs) of Noida demanding abolition of toll tax on Delhi-Noida-Delhi (DND) flyway, have forcibly opened the expressway for vehicles for free.
The protesters, led by BJP leader and founder of Janhit Morcha, Nawab Singh Nagar, had yesterday launched an indefinite protest in support of their demand to make the DND flyway -- expressway connecting the national capital and neighbouring Uttar Pradesh -- toll free.
Nagar, a former MLA, said they have "opened" the toll plaza and allowing vehicles to pass for free. "Our aim is to make DND toll free," said Nagar while claiming that the protest is not politically motivated.
"We will continue our fight till DND is made toll free," U Bhardwaj of Manav Sewa Samiti, an NGO which is also supporting the cause, said. Federation Of Noida Residents Welfare Associations, President N P Singh said, "We have filed petition in Allahabad High Court. Hearing is almost complete and decision is expected soon."
The DND Flyway management over the demand said that they have an agreement for 30 years to operate the toll.
