Bharat Bandh: In view of the Bharat Bandh called by farmers' unions on Friday (February 16), the Gautam Buddh Nagar Police imposed restrictions under CrPC section 144, including a ban on unauthorized public assemblies, which would be enforced across the district.

Additionally, the police have cautioned commuters travelling to and from Delhi about potential traffic diversions in Noida. They have urged citizens to consider using the metro rail service "as far as possible" to minimize inconvenience during this time.

The decisions have been taken in view of the proposed protest marches called by the farmers' body Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) and other unions.

"Various programmes like protest demonstrations are proposed by SKM and various organisations for Friday. Hence, Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) is implemented on February 16," the police said in a statement.

Bharat Bandh

Several farmers' unions, including the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), part of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), have called for a Gramin Bharat Bandh or nationwide strike on Friday to press for their demands before the Centre. The Samyukta Kisan Morcha urged all like-minded farmers' organisations to unite and take part in the February 16 Gramin Bharat Bandh called by the central trade unions. The Noida-based Bharatiya Kisan Parishad (BKP) has also expressed its support for Friday's Bharat Bandh.

The Samyukta Kisan Morcha, a non-political organization, has called upon all like-minded farmer organizations to come together and participate in the Bharat Bandh. The day-long protest will commence from 6 am and continue until 4 pm.

The call for Bharat Bandh comes at a time when hundreds of farmers marching from Punjab have been halted at the state's border with Haryana near Ambala, approximately 200 kilometers away from Delhi. Security forces in Haryana have employed tear gas to attempt to disperse them.

BKU leader Pawan Khatana said during the Bharat Bandh called by his union, farmers have been asked to strike their work for one day in order to press the government for demands. "Farmers have been asked to shun work in farms or not go to markets for any purchases tomorrow. Traders and transporters have also been exhorted to join the strike tomorrow," Khatana told PTI.
