New Delhi: The Bharat Bandh (nationwide strike) called by farmers on Tuesday in protest against three new farm laws passed by the Centre is set affect services across various sectors.
“It will be an emphatic Bharat Bandh on December 8”, All India Kisan Federation president Prem Singh Bhangu said on Saturday after the fifth round of talks between farmers’ leaders and the Centre failed to break the deadlock.
“The protest is to show that we don’t support some of the policies of the government,” Bharatiya Kisan Union Spokesperson Rakesh Tikait said. Unions have said their protest is “peaceful and will continue that way”.
Delhiites are expected to face trouble as several auto and taxi unions in the national capital have decided to join Bharat Bandh. However, many other unions have decided not to support the bandh.
Delhi Taxi Tourist Transporters Association President Sanjay Samrat said in a statement that several unions, including Delhi State Taxi Cooperative Society, and Kaumi Ekta Welfare Association will join the strike on tomorrow.
