Farmer Unions issue Bharat Bandh call on March 26

The Indian farmers are protesting at Delhi borders for over three months against central government’s three farm laws issued in 2020. According to an Indian Express report, farmer leader Buta Singh Burjgill said farmers along with trade unions will protest the hike in fuel prices and privatisation of railways on March 15.

“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,” reports Indian Express.

The farmer unions have also decided to celebrate ‘Shaheedi divas’ of Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev, Indian Express added.

Farmers leaders also said that copies of the new farm laws will be burnt during ‘Holika Dahan’ on March 28.

After the Republic Day violence, the farmers’ unions are spreading their message loud and clear across India. As a result, farmers from Punjab, Uttar Pradesh are joining farmers at Singhu, Tikri, Ghazipur protest sites.

On February 26, the Confederation of All India Traders called a nationwide strike demanding a review of the provisions of the goods and services tax (GST) regime.

Why are farmers protesting?

Ever since the central government has issued three farm laws, farmers from various parts of India are protesting at Delhi borders. The farmers are asserting that the farm laws will dismantle MSP system and it will further lead to exploitation from big corporations. However, the government has maintained that the new laws will bring better opportunities to farmers and introduce new technologies in agriculture.
