Farmers Protest 121st Days: Farmers today India closed, know what is open and what is closed?

Kundan Singh, New Delhi: Today is the 121st day of the peasant movement against agricultural laws. But there is no solution to this deadlock so far. While the farmers are adamant on their demands, the government is not ready to back down. Farmers on the Ghazipur, Tikri and Singhu borders have been adamant about demanding the withdrawal of agricultural laws, although their number has now reduced considerably.

In the midst of all this, farmers’ organizations sitting on a dharna called for a 12-hour shutdown today on the completion of 4 months of the agitation. This bandh has been announced from 6 am to 6 pm. During the bandh, farmers have also announced the burning of copies of agricultural laws. After this, on March 28, farmers have announced to burn copies of the three agricultural laws on the occasion of Holika Dahan.

Farmer leaders say that after 120 days of protests, the Bharat Bandh will start at 6 am on Friday and then it will remain till 6 in the evening. All shops and dairies will remain closed between 6 am and 6 pm, while there will be no effect on the medical stores and essential services.

At the same time, these people say that during Bharat Bandh, our aim is to awaken the central government to withdraw the three central agricultural laws. During this time no one should be disturbed, it will be taken care of. Neither any company-factory will be closed nor the road will be blocked. Vehicles will also not be stopped. This is a mass movement and people come voluntarily to join us in India.

What will be closed?

There are plans to disrupt the rail and road traffic of farmers during the bandh. Places like shops and dairy will be closed. From 6 am to 6 pm, public spaces will also be closed.

Significantly, since last November 26, a large number of farmers have settled on different borders in Delhi. But till now no agreement has been reached between the farmer and the government on this issue. Till now 12 rounds of talks have been held between the farmers’ government to remove the deadlock on agricultural laws, but no result has been found. Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar proposed to postpone the new agricultural laws from one to one and a half years, but farmers are adamant on their demand for minimum support price guarantee and withdrawal of these agricultural laws.
