In wake of the protests and demonstrations called by the Seemandhara and Telangana activists in the national capital, two Metro stations –Central Secretariat and Udyog Bhawan - will remain closed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday.
"Due to security reasons, as advised by the Delhi Police, two metro stations will remain closed between 9am and 5pm due to a snap dharna likely to be organized by pro-Seemandhara and Telangana activists near VVIPs residences," a Delhi metro official said.
However, interchange and controlled exit would be allowed at the Central Secretariat station.
Thousands of protestors from Andhra Pradesh on Sunday gathered here to participate in an anti-Telangana agitation over the proposed bifurcation of the state.
The government recently approved the creation of Telangana, a move that has revived deep political divisions in Andhra Pradesh and raised fears of violence in the area between pro and anti Telangana groups.
Earlier, the parliament erupted in mayhem when a lawmaker fired pepper spray in the House in protest against the Telangana Bill, which left lawmakers coughing, sneezing and holding scarves to their faces. The agitated protesters also broke a glass table and broke an official's microphone.
The furor erupted after Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde rose to table the bill.
Andhra Pradesh MP Lagadapati Rajagopal, who was later expelled from the Congress, then unleashed a pepper spray.
The state assembly of Andhra Pradesh had earlier rejected the draft Bill to create a separate Telangana state.
