India stifles with 'Bharat Bandh' against FDI, fuel price hike
New Delhi: The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance and many other parties have called for a nationwide shutdown today to protest against the FDI and the rise in prices of fuels. The opposition shutdown on Thursday against the reforms rolled out by the central government crippled life in many parts of India as passengers and commercials vehicles went off the roads.

People working for BJP’s Yuva Morcha stopped three trains at the Patna railway station while CPI (ML) workers blocked the Ganga Sagar Express train. There were demonstrations seen on the railway tracks of Allahabad by the Samajwadi Party workers. Also the trains in Bhubaneswar in Odisha were stopped. As far as Delhi is concerned transport seems to run easily there.

Government and private offices, schools, colleges, banks, and other financial institutions also remained shut. Protestors also carried out rallies, marches and demonstrations at different places. Whereas in some states, like Himachal, government offices and educational institutions were functioning normally.

Most traders and retailers across India have their shutters down. "We are not supporting any political party but fighting a battle for our own survival," said Viren Shah, president of the Federation of Retail Traders Welfare Associations in Mumbai.

While Trinamool Congress is against the decision of Bharat Bandh as according to her, Bandh will do no good to the citizens. "We will not allow bandh forcibly," Mamata Banerjee said. She further said that this cannot be tolerated and this action would only add up to increased prices of several commodities and therefore worsen the situation.

On the other hand to put a damper on things, the Assam government has made a compulsory pay cut of the government employees who will be a part of the Bharat Bandh. So far there is no report of violence from any state.
