Farmers’ Union has called for a Bharat Bandh on September 27 against the three agricultural laws of the Central Government. At the same time, farmer leader Rakesh Tikait said that the central government is not talking to the farmers. He noted that Bharat Bandh had happened before.
This, too, remains part of a movement. Political parties and non-political parties support. During this, Rakesh Tikait said there is an appeal to farmers, women, transporters and shopkeepers to join the maximum number of people. Fronts will also remain closed. Appeal to all to cooperate in this. This movement is a movement of ordinary people.
Rakesh Tikait told Bharat Bandh that no shop would be forcibly closed. But will appeal to the people to keep their shops closed. He said that all the parties should come together in this bandh program. Tikait said that he would ask BJP people to join the bandh. They should consider it as a one-day ‘farmer’s lockdown’.
Along with this, take a day off if people face problems due to Bharat Bandh. People also take holidays. That’s why I appeal to the people to take a holiday in the name of farmers.
Health essential services will be exempted due to bandh.
Explain that during this time, medical and health essential services will be exempted. Apart from this, farmers will not go inside the borders of Delhi. It is worth noting that thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh have been camping on the Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur borders of Delhi for the last several months.
These farmers are demanding repeal of agricultural laws and a legal guarantee on minimum support price. Meanwhile, the protesting farmers have expressed apprehension that these laws will destroy the MSP system, leaving them at the mercy of big corporates. However, the government has said that the new rules will bring better opportunities for farmers.
