New Delhi: Normal life was disrupted and people were put to great inconvenience in many different parts of the country by the day-long shutdown on Monday 27 September against the new farm laws. The strike was called by Samyukta Kisan Morcha but people at large view this body as nothing else but a group of self-proclaimed farm leaders who have been drawing support mainly from the adhatiyas of Punjab and the Khalistani’s abroad.
Many trains had to be cancelled, highways and roads were blocked and commuters were left stranded for hours on Monday.
The maximum impact of Monday’s protest was felt in Delhi, western Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana. Parts of Kerala, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Bihar and Odisha were also affected.
