Farmers have learned to have blocked Jodhpur Howrah Express at Bhabhua station in Bihar. Further, workers of Jan Adhikar Party (Loktantrik) have already started staging a ‘rail roko’ agitation at Patna Junction railway station.

The rail blockade was announced by Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), an umbrella body of farmer unions that is spearheading the protest, last week to press for its demand to repeal the legislation.
