Farmers from other states of the country including Punjab, Haryana, UP, Maharashtra are participating in this Bharat Band of farmers. 31 farmer organizations have joined hands for Bharat Band. Not only this, this Bharat Bandh has the support of many opposition parties including Congress, Akali Dal.

Apart from farmer unions, opposition parties are also protesting in many states. Tejashwi Yadav, leader of the main opposition party Rashtriya Janata Dal, also participated in the farmers’ protests in Bihar. During the protest, Tejaswi Yadav was seen sitting on the tractor. In an interaction with the media, he accused the central government of corporatizing the agriculture sector.

He also said in an interview, “The government, through its founders, has worked to make our farmers as puppet, these bills are completely anti-farmer bills. This government did not leave any sector which they had not privatized. MSP(Minimum Support Price) is not mentioned in the bill anywhere. The Farmers Bill is anti-farmer and farmers are disappointed with it. The government had said that they would double the income of farmers by 2022 but their bill would make the farmers poorer. The agricultural sector has been corporatized.”

In this rally of Patna, Tejashwi Yadav was seen driving a tractor. A large number of people were seen in his rally. Apart from this, RJD workers also staged a protest in Darbhanga, where some workers were seen sitting on buffaloes.
