The nationwide shutdown called by farmers over the three Farm Laws received a mixed response across India on Tuesday with most of the businesses and transport services remaining normal with exceptions.

Farmers are protesting against the three new agricultural laws by the Central government that they fear will ruin their livelihood.Shops and commercial establishments were closed, transport affected and traffic disrupted as protesters squatted on roads and train tracks in several parts of the country on Tuesday in response to the “Bharat Bandh”, called by farmers demanding a repeal of the new farm laws.
