Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 27 (PTI) The hartal in Kerala backed by the ruling LDF and the Congress-led UDF to express solidarity with protesting farmers who called a nationwide “Bharat Bandh”, started early Monday morning.

Public transport, especially the KSRTC bus services, has been affected as almost all unions in the state participate in the hartal, and people who have had to travel have opted for private modes of transport while others are stayed at home.

Union leaders like INTUC President R Chandrasekharan on Saturday said the statewide hartal would be peaceful and there would be no blockages of vehicles or forced closings of shops. .

While the BJP called the hartal “anti-people”, party secretary general George Kurian said on Saturday that even if the unions affiliated with him do not support the strike, they will not oppose it. openly.

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha, spearhead of the anti-farm agitation, announced on September 27 “Bharat Bandh” aimed at strengthening and further expanding the agitation of farmers which began in November last year.

The protesting farmers have called for the repeal of laws, which they fear will do away with the MSP system, leaving them at the mercy of big business. PTI HMP
