Farmers restricted milk, grain and vegetable supply in several districts of Rajasthan today in support of the ‘bandh’ call given by the ‘Kisan Mahapanchayat’ to express solidarity with their counterparts in neighbouring Madhya Pradesh. “Several meetings were held to condole the deaths of farmers killed in police firing in Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh. The farmers also stopped the supply of essential items,” said president of Kisan Mahapanchayat, Rampal Jat.

He said that villages in six districts – Tonk, Sikar, Alwar, Jaipur, Bikaner and Barmer, supported the bandh call and did not supply milk, vegetables and grains. The farmers also presented a memorandum to district administration officials as well.

Continuing the serial protest, villages in Karauli, Dausa, Pali, Chhittorgarh and Pratapgarh districts will observe the ‘bandh’ on Monday, he said adding that various other bodies representing farmers are also joining hands to collectively raise their voice.
