Bandh disrupts normal life

Normal life across the state comes to a grinding halt on Saturday following the 12 statewide Assam bandh in protest against the Centre’s move for Indian citizenship for all non Muslim Bangladeshi and Pakistani nationals who have been staying in the country.

Vehicles are off from the streets. Shops and markets, schools and colleges, offices and banks refused to open under the impact of the paralyzing bandh which began at 5 in the morning to end at 5 in the evening.

The bandh is total in Guwahati city where ASTC is running a skeleton bus services. The bandh, however, has hardly any impact in Barak valley.

At least 12 student organizations have called the bandh in protest against the move for Indian citizenship for all non Muslim Bangladeshi and Pakistani nationals who have been staying in the country.
