Rakesh Tikait calls Bharat Bandh Successful

Bhartiya Kisan Morcha Leader Rakesh Tikait said, “Our Bandh was successful. We had the full support of farmers … We can’t seal down everything as we have to facilitate the movement of people. We are ready for talks with the government but no discussions are happening.”

Punjab & Haryana: In Punjab & Haryana, national highways, state highways, link road & railways tracks were severally blocked, bridging road & rail traffic to a halt.

In Punjab farmers protested at over 350 places. Punjab’s Additional Director General of Police(AGDP) has issued instructions to the police forces of the state to ensure law and order at protest places. A close watch is being kept at all the dharna sites. In Haryana too, highways are blocked 25 places alone in the Jind district.

Jammu: Demonstrations and rallies were held across Jammu district on Monday in support of the Bharat Bandh called by farmers to demand repeal of the Centre's three agri laws. Led by CPI(M) leader M Y Tarigami, hundreds of activists and farmers took out a rally and sat on a dharna on the main road here, leading to disruption of traffic.

Madhya Pradesh: The Bharat Bandh call given by some farmer unions against the Centre's new farm laws had no major impact in Madhya Pradesh on Monday as day-to-day and commercial activities went on as usual.
