Amid the nationwide 'Bharat Bandh', the Bhartiya Kisan Union (Charuni) Gurnam Singh on Friday has advised the farmers—who have blocked National Highways—to not stop local commuters, milkmen, and water tankers.  

"On the call given, you have actively participated in the 'Bharat Bandh' in Haryana, but there have been complaints, that even sick people are not being allowed to travel, and milkmen and water tankers are being stopped". 

"I request you don’t stop sick people, and those travelling in emergency cases such as in case of death. Don’t stop local commuters, milkmen, water tankers, army vehicles and other essential services. You are doing well. We are protesting against the government.
