Delhi Traffic police did special arrangement near to the Yamuna ghats to avoid the rush in the national capital on Thursday evening on October 26 and Friday morning on October 27 for the celebration of Chhath puja. Several road diversions have been planned for the convenience of devotees as thousands of people are expected to gather at Yamuna ghats for Puja. The Traffic diversions will be from 3 PM to 8 PM on Thursday and also on Friday morning from 4 AM to 8 AM. Commuters have been advised to avoid roads near ghats during this timing. The traffic police marked 34 ghats areas, including east, north-east, north-west and outer areas of Delhi to avoid the traffic jam.
