Separatists' bandh call paralyzes life in Nagaon

The down-to-dusk Assam bandh called by the banned United Liberation
Front of Asom (ULFA) passed of peacefully in Nagaon district. The
bandh was called in protest against the arrest of two of its top
leaders, Sasha Choudhury and Chitraban Hajarika.

The 12 - hour bandh paralysed the normal life in and around Nagaon.
Shops and business establishments,educational and financial
institutions and govt. and central government offices including post
offices and the BSNL offices remained closed. Except few private
vehicles and rickshaws, vehicular traffic remained off the road. No
untoward incident was reported from any part of the district.

It shows that how the Bandh-culture had been developing at-par with West Bengal prefixed or suffixed by either Sunday or Govt. holidays, where nobody minds the Bandh as long as it has resulted into paid holiday !!!
