There will be Bharat Bandh tomorrow on September 27. The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) has called a 10-hour Bharat Bandh on Monday.

It will mark a year of the passing of three controversial agricultural laws.

September 27 marks the first anniversary when Indian President Ram Nath Kovind gave assent to the three bills with his signing.

The umbrella body of farmers nationwide has been protesting against these three agricultural laws for around 10 months.

Hence, Bharat Bandh on Monday will be peaceful and the public will face minimal inconvenience.

The guideline dictates during the time of the Bharat Bandh, central and state government offices, markets, shops, factories, schools, colleges and other educational institutions will not be allowed to function.

Also, Public and private transport will not be allowed to ply on roads; no public functions will be allowed. But emergency services including ambulances and fire services will be allowed to function.

The main themes for the day would be ‘Bharat Bandh against Anti-Farmer Modi Government’, ‘Modi Brings in Mandi Bandh’, ‘Farmers take up Bharat Bandh’ and so on, the SKM statement reads.

It is to be noted that farmers‘ Bharat Bandh has already gathered support from several political parties. These include Congress, AAP, YSRC, DMK, Telugu Desam, Left parties, BSP, RJD etc.

Now the Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu governments have also announced complete support to the nationwide strike.

But Delhi will remain under blanket security. Moreover, traders, small industries, shopkeepers won’t be affected by this Bharat Bandh.

The All India Bank Officers’ Confederation has also extended its support to farmers’ call of Bharat Bandh.
