Bandh near-total, peaceful in city
The bandh observed on Tuesday, as part of the nationwide general strike call given by the Left parties and various trade unions, was near-total and peaceful in the city. Barring stray incidents of damage of windscreens of RTC buses, no violence was reported from any part of the city.
Most of the schools declared a holiday but students of schools and colleges, which didn't declare the holiday, had a tough time in reaching their schools in the absence of autorickshaws and RTC buses also stopped by the bandh enforcers at some places.
The school children also had a tough time returning home as the school management declared a holiday at the eleventh hour.
Corporate colleges, which had internal examinations, closed for the day after holding the examination and the students had to trek home in the absence of autos.
Many of the shops downed their shutters voluntarily, while the others were forced to close by the bandh enforcers.
Railway passengers who arrived by various trains had to walk up to Dondaparthy junction, a kilometre away from the Railway Station, carrying their luggage and look for autos in the bylanes.
