BS Web Team |
The All India Backward And Minority Communities Employees Federation (BAMCEF) has decided to observe 'Bharat Bandh' on Wednesday over the government's refusal to conduct a caste-based census for other backward classes (OBCs).
According to Neeraj Dhiman, the Saharanpur District President of the Bahujan Mukti Party (BMP), the federation is also protesting the non-implementation of reservations for the SCs/STs/OBCs in the private sector and the use of electronic voting machines (EVMs) during elections, among other issues.
Along with BAMCEF, the Bharat Bandh is also supported by the National Convener of Bahujan Kranti Morcha, Bahujan Mukti Party, National Parivartan Morcha, Bharat Mukti Morcha, Bhartiya Yuva Morcha, and other affiliated organisations.
Meanwhile, D P Singh, acting state president of the BMP, has appealed to the people to make Bharat Bandh a successful movement. People who are supporting the Bandh are spreading the word on social media platforms to demand the closure of businesses and public transportation tomorrow.
The demands of the organisations include:
Shops, banks and small businesses may be impacted today. On the other hand, transport services, offices, schools and colleges are likely to operate normally.
