Marking one year of the passage of the Centre’s three farm laws, Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), an umbrella body of over 40 farmer unions, has called for a ‘Bharat Bandh’ on Monday.
While all the government and private offices, educational and other institutions, shops, industries, and commercial establishments remained closed across the nation, the Delhi border witnessed massive traffic gridlock.
Massive traffic snarl is seen at Gurugram-Delhi border as vehicles entering the national capital are being checked by Delhi Police and paramilitary jawans as the Dhansa border has been closed for traffic movement. Social media is flooded with pictures and videos of several vehicles stuck at the border.
The call for the bandh have been supported by major opposition parties including the Congress, BSP, Aam Aadmi Party, Samajwadi Party, Telugu Desam Party, Left parties and Swaraj India.
