Amid Intensifying Protests, Farmer Leaders Call For ‘Bharat Bandh’ On December 8

Farmers protesting at the borders of Delhi against three central agri-marketing laws have called for a countrywide shutdown on Tuesday, saying they will block all roads leading to the capital, amid a deadlock with the Centre. Addressing a press conference, Bharatiya kisan Union (BKU) leader Gurnam Singh Chadoni said if the Centre does not accept their demands during Saturday’s talks, they will intensify their agitation against the new farm laws. “In our meeting today, we have decided to give a ‘Bharat Bandh’ call on December 8 during which we will also occupy all toll plazas,” another farmer leader Harvinder Singh Ladkhwal said after a meeting on Friday. “We have planned to block all roads leading to Delhi in the coming days if new farm laws are not scrapped,” he added.
