The Samyukta Kisan Morcha while addressing the press conference gave a call for Bharat Bandh on March 26. The day will also complete 4 months of farmers’ protest.
Meanwhile, a joint meeting has been convened on March 17 with All Trade Unions and Bus and Truck Unions to prepare for the shutdown.
Likewise, the farmers announced that March 15 will be marked as a day against privatisation and inflation.
Farm unions will mark 19 march as Mandi Bachao day. Similarly, the farmers will celebrate Martyrdom Day of Shaheed Bhagat Singh on March 23 at the Delhi borders. Also, the copies of three farm laws will be burnt in effigy (Holika) on the occasion of Holi.
