The Samyukta Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of protesting farmer unions spearheading the agitation against the agriculture-related legislations, on Friday gave a call for a 24-hour blockade of the KMP expressway.
A long traffic jam was witnessed on both sides the KMP.
The 136-km-long expressway is also known as the Western Peripheral Expressway.
