On January 26, protesting farmers had clashed with police during the tractor rally against the Centre's three farm laws and stormed into the Red Fort.
The protest outside the residences of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs and MLAs is to mark the one year of the promulgation of these laws as ordinances by the Centre, the official said.
Farmer bodies have given a call to observe May 26 as a “black day” to mark six months of the agitation against the laws.
The state government have imposed extensive COVID-19 curbs in addition to measures like a weekend lockdown and night curfew till May 15.
The members of the Left parties also participated in the Bandh at Maddilapalem junction against the Centre over agriculture laws and privatisation of the Vizag steel plant.
The Delhi Police has said adequate security arrangements have been put in place in view of the bandh.
Earlier on Sunday, Tikait had suggested that farmers in Karnataka should organise a protest in the state similar to that of Delhi.
The BKU leader said farmers need to protest against the Central government's decision of privatising PSUs.
The state NCP chief also alleged that more than 300 farmers have died in the ongoing protest against the three new central farm laws.
Having faced chilly winters and heavy rains earlier, the construction of these concrete structures is among a slew of measures that farmers are taking to prepare themselves for the impending summer.
Thousands of farmers, mostly from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at the Delhi border points for over 100 days, demanding the repeal of farm laws.
