Road shows brew traffic snarl

Normal surface communication came to a grinding halt on the National Highway No 37 when Rahul Gandhi was holding a huge road show in Nagaon on Wednesday.

The vehicles bound for Guwahati were not allowed to cross beyond Jakhalabandhi while the Sivasagar bound buses were stopped at Roha hours before the road show.

Local residents told Assam Times that the traffic snarl took place only due to lack alternative arrangement to clear the vehicles during the road show.
