  • Bharat Bandh taking place by farmers tomorrow after 4 months of protests

Its been four months since the farmers have been protesting at Delhi's borders against the BJP's three agriculture bills. 

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha has put forward an appeal to all of India to help them mark March 26th as Bharat Bandh. 

The farmers union SKM has called for a Bharat Bandh on March 26, from 6 am to 6 pm. During this time all road transport, markets, and other public places will shut down across the country. 

Farmer leader Darshan Pal said."We appeal to the people of the country to make this Bharat Bandh a success and honour their 'Annadata".

Thousands of farmers, primarily from the state of Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at the Delhi border points --- Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur --- demanding the repeal of farm laws and a legal guarantee on the minimum support price (MSP) for their crops.

Earlier, Farmer leader Buta Singh Burjgill had said: "We will observe a complete Bharat bandh on March 26, when our protest against the three farm laws completes four months. The peaceful bandh will remain effective from morning till evening."

Farmers leaders also said that copies of the new farm laws will be burnt on Holi  March 28th. 

For traders participation in the 'Bharat Bandh' call given by the farmers' unions on March 26 against the three farm laws would be optional.
