NEW DELHI, FEBRUARY 25: The Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) on Thursday appealed to farmers to peacefully participate in a “Bharat Bandh” called by transport and trade unions on Friday, February 26.
Traders’ body CAIT has said that all commercial markets across the country will remain closed on February 26 in view of its ”Bharat Bandh” call demanding a review of the provisions of the goods and services tax (GST) regime.
The Morcha, spearheading anti-farm laws protests at Delhi borders, said it supports the Bharat Bandh called by transport and trade unions on Friday.
“We appeal to all farmers in the country to support all the ”Bharat Bandh” protesters peacefully and make the Bandh a success,” it said in a statement.
The SKM also condemned the management body of DAV School in Gopalapuram, Chennai, for allegedly publishing “prejudiced and presumptive” questions on farmers’ tractor march on Republic Day, in an exam conducted by it.
Thousands of farmers have been protesting at different border points of Delhi since November last year against the three farm laws – enacted by the Centre govt in Parliament in September last year. They are demanding repeal of the Centre’s three farm laws and a legal guarantee of MSP for their crops.
Farmers will celebrate “Yuva Kisan Diwas” on Friday. On this day, all the stages of SKM will be operated by the youth.
