The agitating farmers in Madhya Pradesh have called for a pan-India bandh on Sunday, June 10. Meanwhile, Shiv Kumar Sharma, President, Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Mahasangh on Friday said that they have decided to observe a Bharat Bandh on June 10 till 2 pm.
While speaking to ANI, Shiv Kumar Sharma, President, Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Mahasangh said,''We have decided to observe a Bharat Bandh on June 10 till 2 pm. Would like to request all the businessmen of cities to close their shops till 2 pm & pay tribute to farmers who have lost their lives in previous years.''
Several kisan morchas launched 'Gaon Bandh' (village blockade) agitation on Friday. During the period, no eatables would be supplied from villages to cities. Although the state government has made arrangements to minimise the impact of agitation, cities are set to see shortage of items like vegetables and milk.
