Delhi - UP bus impasse


The Delhi – UP bus impasse has entered almost one week. Buses from Delhi are not allowed into UP, including NOIDA. In retaliation, Delhi administration is not allowing buses from UP into Delhi.

Most buses to UP plies from the Anand Vihar ISBT and some from the Kashmere Gate ISBT. The road across the traffic junction at Anand Vihar falls in UP. To catch a bus to UP one needs to walk down the road instead of waiting in the ISBT. It is practical chaos there. Busses are creating traffic jams on the road leading to the Pacific Mall. Even school children have suffered as DTC school buses are not allowed into NOIDA areas. The height of political rivalry is that the impasse continues at the insistence of our leaders. UP is under SP rule of Mulayam Singh Yadav while Delhi is under Congress rule of Shiela Dixit. Once ally, Congress and SP are now sworn foes. It is one of those examples of our elected leaders holding public to ransom at their whims. Delhi government is now talking about stopping progress of Metro line to NOIDA.

As a traveler, one is advised to explore traveling by train to UP rather than trying to travel by those dilapidated UP Roadway buses.
