Taxi owners in Delhi, protesting against the Supreme Court ban on plying of diesel-run taxis, brought traffic to a grinding halt for the second successive day, much to the discomfort and frustration of commuters, reports NDTV.

The protesters were shouting slogans as they blocked crucial points across Delhi and NCR.

Traffic police personnel were deployed to make life easier for commuters, however that didn’t help mitigate the traffic situation, reports Hindustan Times.

After the Supreme Court order, over 27,000 diesel-run taxis went off the roads of the national capital, thousands of commuters on Monday had a tough time finding means of travel, their troubles were exacerbated by the searing heat.

Delhiites were ostensibly agitated and took to twitter to express their grievances, slamming the Delhi Traffic Police for failing to provide relief to the commuters.

As expected, Kejriwal was targeted for remaining ‘silent’ over the ruckus.

And of course, Ashutosh of the AAP managed to attract attention.

Even in this grave situation, there were some humorous tweets.
