Normal life stands totally paralyzed on Friday following a 12 hour statewide bandh in protest against the Indo-B'desh boundary ratification bill tabled in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday. Streets wore a deserted look in the absence vehicles as soon as the BJP-sponsored bandh began across the state. Shops and markets, schools and colleges, banks and offices remained closed from 6 in the morning. The UPA government tabled the bill for constitutional amendment in the light of the boundary ratification deal signed in Dhaka by prime minister Manmohan Singh and his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina two years back. If the deal comes into force, hundreds of acres of land belonging to Assam would go to the neighbouring country.
