The BKU activists and farmers blocked the Yamuna Expressway by squatting on the road which led to a massive traffic jam. The blockade prevented traffic movement from Agra to Mathura. In Baghpat, Muzaffarnagar, Meerut and Bijnor, farmers blocked the highways disrupting traffic flow at several places.
