Delhi: With growing support from trade unions and Opposition parties for tomorrow’s “Bharat Bandh” call, some services, including supply of fruits and vegetables, could get affected in Delhi – now the epicentre of farmers’ protests – and the rest of the country.

The call for a “peaceful” nationwide shutdown on December 8, a day ahead of the sixth round of talks between protesting farmers and the centre, is meant to mount pressure on the government to repeal three contentious agriculture reform laws.

The protest is to show that we don’t support some of the policies of the government,” Bharatiya Kisan Union Spokesperson Rakesh Tikait said. Unions have said their protest is “peaceful and will continue that way”.
