Partial response to 12 hr bandh

Normal life in lower areas remained partially disrupted following a 12 hour bandh call by six non Bodo organizations on Thursday demanding ST status.

The bandh which began at 6 in the morning evoked hardly any response in the Bodo dominated areas in Kokrajhar and Gossaigaon.

Bus and train services remained uninterrupted in these areas. Same it was in the shops and markets, schools and colleges, banks and offices.

 

The statewide bandh had mixed response in some particular areas in lower Assam. A section of bandh supporters partially damaged a bus by pelting stones in Barama area.
