The farmers protesting against the Centre's farm laws have called an all-India strike on 26 March. A joint convention will be organised with trade unions and other mass organisations for planning the Bharat Bandh, the Samyukta Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body to farmer unions, has said.
26 March marks the completion of four months of the protest at the Delhi borders, which started on 26 November, reports the NDTV.
On 26 January, as the protest completed two months, the farmers had held a tractor rally which had ended in violence as the protesters over-ran the iconic Mughal-era Red Fort.
The synergy with trade unions and other mass organisations is part of the farmers' plan to broaden the base of the agitation against the Centre. The farmers - whose protest has crossed 100 days - have come up with a protest calendar that also includes an "anti-corporate day" and an "anti-government day" on 15 March.
On 23 March, the martyrdom day of Shaheed Bhagat Singh, youngsters from all over the country will join the farmers' protests in Delhi borders.
