Bengaluru: With several organisations extending their support to Bharat Bandh on Monday, traffic in Bengaluru city and highways is most likely to take a hit. The entry and exit points and heart of the city is most likely to face the heat, given the huge traffic density of the city.

However, public transport operators such as Namma Metro, BMTC and KSRTC buses are likely to operate as usual, but depends on the situation.

Samyukta Kisan Morcha has given the bandh call as three controversial farm laws got presidential assent a year ago.

Besides farmer organisations, All India Bank Officers’ Confederation, All India Centre of Trade Unions (AICTU), Autorickshaw drivers and main opposition party Congress  in the state have pledged their support to the bandh call.

Farmer leader Kodihalli Chandrashekar said protests are planned across the State including Bengaluru. About 8,000-10,000 farmers, fruits and vegetable vendors will take out a procession from K R Puram market to Town Hall, he added.

The farmers have planned to block roads in the entry and exit points of the city. Mysuru-Bengaluru road, Bengaluru-Hyderabad, Bengaluru-Chennai road are among the highways that will be affected.

Communist Party of India (Marxist), Communist Party of India, All India Forward Block, Revolutionary Socialist Party and Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) have also extended their support.
