    According to Neeraj Dhiman, the Bahujan Mukti Party's Saharanpur District President, the bandh was called since the Centre failed to perform an OBC caste-based census. 


    He also brought up concerns about using electronic voting machines in elections and the lack of reservations for SC/ST/OBC in the private sector. 


    The Bahujan Mukti Party's interim state president, DP Singh, also urged people to make the Bharat Bandh a success.
