Farmers are protesting against the Agriculture Bill on Friday. Many farmer organizations have called a nationwide bandh today. A nationwide India bandh has been called by the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee, All India Kisan Mahasangh and Bharatiya Kisan Union. Many Union ministers including Prime Minister Narendra Modi have assured the farmers that this bill will bring revolutionary changes in the lives of farmers and the system of MSP will remain as before. Despite this, the farmers' organizations say that this bill is going to benefit corporates. Due to this, a nationwide bandh has been called. The roadway in Punjab-Haryana and Bihar has been affected due to the protest. In many places farmers are sitting on railway tracks.
Agriculture Bill reminds East India Company Raj: Priyanka
Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said that MSP will be taken away from the farmers. They will be forced to become slaves of trillions through contract farming. Neither the price nor the honor. The farmer will become a laborer on his own farm. The BJP's agricultural bill reminds the East India Company Raj. We will not let this injustice happen.

The government had said that they would double the income of farmers by 2022, but these bills would make them poor. The agricultural sector has been privatized. '
