New Delhi: As farmers protesting against three contentious agricultural laws hold an all-India strike – Bharat Bandh – today to mark four months of their agitation at Delhi’s borders, demonstrations have affected rail and road traffic. Four trains were cancelled and more than 30 trains were stopped over agitations near railway stations in Delhi, Chandigarh, Firozpur and Amritsar.
Demonstrations were also reported at National Highway-9 near one of three protest epicenters in the national capital – the Ghazipur border. Policemen have set up barricades to block the movement of protesters. The farmers’ protest at the Delhi borders started on November 26 at three epicenters- Singhu border, Ghazipur and Tikri.
