New Delhi: National highways, link roads and railway tracks were blocked by protesting farmers during the nationwide Bharat Bandh Monday, resulting in highway blockages and traffic snarls. This led to several people opposing the strike on social media. Some Twitter users furnished 'evidence' to indicate that the strike was a 'failure'. “My city is fully open,” one account posted with an image of a city road brimming with activity and traffic, in an attempt to indicate that the bandh, called by the farmers' union, Samyukta Kisan Morcha, was a washout. Shubham Pathak, whose Twitter account suggests he is from Surat, said: "My city is fully open. Surat do not support Bharat bandh (sic)". His comment received over 1,000 retweets and 1,500 likes. BJP worker Srishiraj received nearly 400 retweets and over 400 likes for his tweet which parroted Pathak's: "My city is fully open. Patna do not support Bharat bandh (sic)." https://twitter.com/srishirajIND/status/1442324489723801600 https://twitter.com/Shubham__Pathak/status/1442341716543954946 Similar posts from other users were also put up. https://twitter.com/PatelRumit13/status/1442350707894468610 https://twitter.com/harishrajguru19/status/1442426245690507277 In many of these tweets,...
