India News Alert

Farmers plan state-wide shutdown strike in Karnataka state on September 28; avoid potential associated protests

TIMEFRAME expected from 9/24/2020, 12:00 AM until 9/29/2020, 11:59 PM (Asia/Kolkata). COUNTRY/REGION Karnataka state

Event

Farmers have called for a state-wide shutdown strike in Karnataka state on Monday, September 28, to demand changes in the agricultural policies of the state government and to protest three controversial agricultural laws that were recently passed by the national parliament. Given that the strike action has been supported by several unions, groups that represent transport operators, and small local businesses, it is likely that participation in the strike action will be high.

It is likely that those participating in the strike action will cause significant disruptions by blocking key roads and rail lines that will disrupt inter-regional travel on Monday. The closure of several businesses can also be expected.

A heightened security presence and localized disruptions to transport are to be expected in the vicinity of potential demonstrations.

Advice

Individuals in Karnataka state are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
