Bharat Bandh: Centre issues advisory, asks states to tighten security
New Delhi: Ahead of the December 8 ‘Bharat Bandh’ called by protesting farmers, the Union government has sent an advisory to different states and UTs to tighten security to maintain peace and harmony within their respective territories.
“The state governments and UT administrations must ensure that the Covid-19 guidelines issued with regard to health and social distancing are strictly followed,” the Home Ministry advisory read.
Different parties like the Congress, SP, DMK, RJD, NCP, CPI, CPI-M, CPI-ML, RSP, AIFB, TRS, and TMC have extended support to the farmers who are demanding repeal of the three new central farm laws.
The next round of talks between farmers and government is proposed to be held on December 9.
