About Bharat Bandh
The ‘Bharat Bandh’ on 8 December has been called by farmers’ unions who have been protesting on the Delhi borders for 12 days demanding the repeal of the Center’s new agricultural marketing laws.
Talks between the government and protesting farmers remained inconclusive on Saturday, even after five rounds of discussions, as union leaders stuck to their demand for repeal of the new farm laws and launched into a ‘maun vrat ‘looking for a clear answer of’ yes or no ‘. forcing the Center to convene another meeting on December 9 to resolve the deadlock.
The three farm laws enacted in September have been projected by the government as major reforms in the agriculture sector that will cut out middlemen and allow farmers to sell anywhere in the country.
However, protesting farmers have expressed their fear that the new laws would pave the way to remove the Minimum Livelihood Price safety cushion and wipe out the mandis, leaving them at the mercy of large corporations. The Center has repeatedly stated that these mechanisms will continue.
