Farmers' unions across several states, including, Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, are taking part in a "Bharat Bandh" today to protest the farm bills cleared by Parliament last week amid pandemonium inside and fierce agitations outside. The protesting farmers have warned the government that their agitations will intensify unless the bills are repealed.

As per news report of NDTV, amid increased security in several states, the farmers have been supported by several opposition parties, including the Congress, the DMK, the AAP, the RJD and the Trinamool Congress, and at least 10 central trade unions. The government says the bills - passed amid what the opposition called "murder of democracy" - will help farmers get better prices for their produce by allowing them to sell at markets and prices of their choosing. Farmers, however, fear the loss of the price support system (MSP) and the entry of private players.
