Bharat Bandh Cripples Normal Life Across Odisha
Protesting the newly enacted farm laws, farmers unions across the country supported by many Opposition parties and some sections of people have called for ‘Bharat Bandh’ – a nationwide shutdown that will remain in force from 11 AM till 3 PM today.
Normal life came to a grinding halt here in Odisha as vehicular movement on many routes has been disrupted due to blocking of highways and main roads. Train services too were affected due to rail roko agitation at many stations over demands to repeal the new farm laws.
