Bharat Bandh Highlights: Traffic Resumes At Delhi Borders After Farmers' Protest

Bharat Bandh today: Samyukt Kisan Morcha has also asked political parties to "stand with farmers"

New Delhi:

Farmer organisations have called a "Bharat Bandh" today as their protest against the new farm laws completes 10 months. The farmers have been pressing for a constitutional guarantee on MSP or the minimum support price. They have alleged that the new laws will allow the private firms to take over the agriculture sector.

Samyukt Kisan Morcha, the umbrella body of over 40 farm unions spearheading the farmers' agitation, has appealed to the people to join the bandh.

The body has also asked political parties to "stand with farmers in their quest to defend principles of democracy and federalism".

Several politicians have expressed support for the protesting farmers, including Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati, Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu and Rahul Gandhi.

Here are the Highlights on Bharat Bandh today:
