According to the Samyukth Kisan Morcha, the protests and the demonstrations will be peaceful. The Union said that schools,colleges, shops government and private offices, educational and other institutions, industries and commercial establishments will be closed across the country.

Farmer organizations have called for a ‘Bharat bandh’ as their protest against the new farm laws. The farmer organizations have been protesting since 10 months.

Furthermore, the farmers’ body has requested the political parties to stand with farmers in their quest to defend principles of democracy and federalism.

Consequently, several politicians have expressed support for the protesting farmers. Bahujan Samaj party chief Mayawati, Punjab congress chief Navjyot Singh Sidhu and Rahul Gandhi have expressed their support.

However, farmers blocked the Shambhu border near Haryana. Anticipating the traffic disruptions, the state police informed the people to be prepared to face traffic congestion.
