Banks play Spoil Sport in Rongali Bihu festivities

Long queues of people could been seen in front of almost all the ATMs of the Nagaon Town today. The irony is that people have to wait for hours queuing on the roads in front of the ATMs, just to withdraw their own hard earned money. This has served as a real dampener for the Rongali Bihu festivities of the local people.


Rongali Bihu is the biggest festival of the year for the local people and the banks have played a spoil sport in the festivities of the local people.


It is high time that minimum banking services are provided to the common man, or will it take another Anna Hazare to ensure the same. Time to take stock.
