Entry and Exit at the Pandit Shree Ram Metro Station were shut by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) in view of the Bharat Bandh on Monday.

The DMRC said, “Pandit Shree Ram Metro Station is near Tikri Border with Haryana, one of the sites of the ongoing protest, will be closed owing to security reasons.”

Meanwhile, the Delhi Traffic Police beefed up security in border areas of the National Capital in view of the Bharat Bandh called by Farmers’ Unions against Centre’s Agriculture Law.

The Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), a coalition of Farmers’ Union, has called a Bharat Bandh to mark the first anniversary of the enactment of the three farm laws.

The Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020 and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, were passed last year.

The Bharat Bandh gathered support from more than 500 Farmer Organizations, 15 Trade Unions, several political parties, six State Governments and varied sections of the society.
