Bharat Bandh on 27 September; 100 Organisations and Political Parties to join

Left groups, the Congress, and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) met on Wednesday at the Communist Party India (CPI) office in Andhra Pradesh to plan for the Bharat Bandh on September 27, 2021.

“Farmers have been agitating in Delhi for nine months, hence this Bharat Bandh will be held to support them,” CPI State Leader Donepudi Sankar stated during the gathering.

He went on to criticise the Centre’s policies, saying, “Farmers have been plunged into chaos by the central government’s three dark laws. In the name of the National Monetisation Pipeline, the central government is selling railway stations, railway lines, telecommunications, oil, gas, insurance, banks, airports, and seaports.”

The government also intends to privatize government organisations, according to the leader.

“The Centre is attempting to dispose of government assets worth Rs 75 lakh crores at a loss. “It is attempting to privatise Visakhapatnam Steel Plant at a loss,” he claimed, adding that “price of gasoline, fuel, gas, and other vital commodities have also soared.”

He then urged the general public, political parties, mass organisations, and labour unions to join the ‘Bharat Bandh.’

Around a hundred organisations, including national political parties, trade unions, farmers’ associations, youth, teachers, and labourers, will participate in the ‘Bharat Bandh’ on September 27.

The decision has been made at a state-level meeting of all the organisations, led by AITUC National Working Committee Member Dr Bhalchandra Kango, which took place in Mumbai on Monday, according to All India Kisan Sabha president Dr Ashok Dhawale. The gathering drew almost 200 leaders from nearly 100 organisations.

According to Dhawale, the speakers focused on the continuous struggles of farmers and workers, as well as the significance of the ‘Bharat Bandh’ against the BJP-RSS government at the Centre led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “bankrupt policies.”
