  • Assessment/analysis/advisory

The standoff between Government/LEAs and TLP protesters is expected to continue despite government efforts to ease down the situation. The escalation in situation would be bad for the country which is already facing due to Covid 19 third wave. The effects of road blocks are being felt by general public in dealing daily routine business affairs. To avoid any damage to lives and property avoidance of these areas/routes would be better option till the time situation is eased.
