The Bharat Bandh called by the farmers’ organization on Monday is going to be a major one as it marks the one year of President Ram Nath Kovind’s assent for the three farms laws.
In a statement, the farmers’ organization said that between 6 am to 4 pm, central and state government offices, markets, shops, factories, schools, colleges and other educational institutions will not be allowed to function.
Private and public transport are also to be affected. However, the impact will vary from state to state as several political parties have supported tomorrow’s bandh.
Will shops, markets be closed?
Traders, shopkeepers are not part of the bandh, Bhartiya Udyog Vyapaar Mandal has said.
Hence, markets are not likely to be closed. However, in states where state governments are supporting the Bharat Bandh, the impact is likely to be intense.
Kerala is likely to come to a standstill as LDF, as well as UDF, have supported the bandh.
The Andhra Pradesh government has supported the strike and decided to stop the APSRTC bus service from tonight to tomorrow evening.
No emergency service will be stalled during the bandh markets are likely to remain open in states where the bandh will not be observed at full force.
However, as trade unions have supported the strike, disruptions are likely in transport services.
All India Bank Officers Confederation has also decided to join the bandh.
