Bharat Bandh LIVE UPDATES: Our protest will be completely peaceful, says Rakesh Tikait, Spokesperson, Bharatiya Kisan Union

New Delhi: Farmers protesting against the Centre’s agricultural sector laws have called a “Bharat Bandh” today after several rounds of talks with the government over the new farm laws remained inconclusive.

Farmer unions on Friday decided to intensify their agitation against the farm laws calling for ‘Bharat Bandh’ today stating that they were not satisfied with amendments to the agricultural legislations being proposed by the government. “The bandh will be observed throughout Tuesday, but the ‘chakka jam’ (road blockade) will be on only till 3 pm,” said Darshan Pal, Punjab unit president of the Krantikari Kisan Union said on Monday.

The leaders of the farmer groups also said that political party will be allowed on stage.

Haryana Police and Delhi Police have issued travel advisories informing that people may face traffic blockages on various roads and highways.
