Bandh partial; peaceful

Normal life in Assam remained partially affected on Tuesday following the Chakka Babank call given by the various trade unions.

The bandh call was given in protest against the central government's labour policies. Banks, financial companies, schools and other educational institutions remained closed and private vehicles were off the road.

Some bandh supporters had to be cleared from the tracks at Lakhtokia in Guwahait and Bongaigaon but running of trains was not affected in any parts of the state.

Shops and business establishments, however, in the commercial town of Tinsukia were closed and all modes of transport off the road.
