Bharat Bandh paralyses Punjab, has limited impact elsewhere


Farm groups in Punjab, which have been at the forefront of the struggle against the Central farm laws, brought the state to near standstill on Monday as the Bharat bandh paralysed rail and road traffic, and business establishments were shut in all towns and cities. While the impact was less severe in Haryana, the western part of Uttar Pradesh saw some toll plazas being blocked and trains cancelled due to protests on tracks.
