LUCKNOW: The Congress party's roadshow on Monday brought the city to a grinding halt and forced it to stay like that for hours.Heavy traffic had descended on the stretch from Kanpur Road to Hazratganj crossing even before the commencement of the roadshow.
As the roadshow began, roads became overcrowded and snarls erupted at each crossing from where it passed.Because of the cascading effect, even areas not on the route of the roadshow were affected.
Piyush Asthana said, "It took me more than one hour to reach Hussainganj crossing from my office in Bapu Bhawan.
"Overcrowding and influx of high number of vehicles led to blockages but those were regulated soon," he added.
It took 45 minutes for me to reach the airport, barely 1km from there," she added.In the evening, those returning from office had a harrowing experience.
