THE gruesome attack on protesting farmers in Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh on October 3 marks a new level of violence against the farmers’ movement which has been going on for the past ten months.

The bandh call saw the participation of crores of people – farmers, agricultural workers, industrial workers, transport workers, employees, shop keepers, students, youth and women.
