Bengaluru: Farmers’ organisations across Karnataka and their allied outfits will hold a state-wide bandh on September 28 to protest against the Karnataka government’s Land Reforms Ordinances and Union government’s contentious Farm Bills.

So far, many labour organisations, Peace Auto and Taxi Association, Bharath Vehicles drivers’ Union, Ola, Uber and Taxi for Sure Owners and Drivers Association, Lorry Owners Association and others have already announced their support to the farmers.

All these associations have decided to support the farmers by halting their services for a day on September 28.

However, the bus services across the state and metro services in Bengaluru will remain to operate normally.

The bus and metro drivers’ associations have not announced their support to the farmers protest making it obvious that the services will function normally on September 28.

For the uninitiated many farmers in Karnataka are against the contentious ordinances passed by the state government on land and agricultural issues, namely the Karnataka Land Reforms (Amendment) Ordinance 2020, Karnataka Agricultural Produce Marketing (Regulation and Development) (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020.

The farmers have also been opposing the three Farm Bills, which were passed in the Rajya Sabha amid uproar and opposition.
