Assam bandh disrupts normalcy


GUWAHATI:Normal lives in many parts remains heavily disrupted when a few tribal bodies enforced a 12 hour statewide bandh on Tuesday raising a slew of demands.

Roads remained deserted as vehicles are not plying. Schools and colleges, shops and markets, banks and offices have remained closed under impact of the bandh.

Bandh supporters in some places tried to enforce the call by burning tyres on the road to stop the movement of vehicles on the road forcing the security forces.

The tribal bodies demand early recruitment in the backlog posts and revival of the HPC Mill in Jagiroad apart from measures to check flood and erosion in the state.

The bandh is total in Namrup, Sivas agar, Jorhat, Golaghat, Raha, Nogaon and Kokrajhar.
