Total and peaceful statewide 12 hr Assam bandh ends

The 12 hour statewide Assam bandh that disrupted normal life has ended on Monday evening. The bandh was by and large peaceful. Barring a few stray incidents, the situation was by and large peaceful. Police arrested as many as 100 AGP and CPI bandh supporters while they were picketing on the streets in Morigaon, Jagiroad, Tezpur, Jamugurihaat. Some supporters in the city tried to make the bandh call success by burning down tyres on the streets. The Assam state secretariat registered thin attendance during the bandh hours that began at 5 in the morning and ended at 5 in the evening.

All shops, hotels, markets, offices and banks were remaining closed during the bandh hours. Roads were wearing a deserted look and barring army and para military forces, all other vehicles were off from the streets.

Main Opposition AGP called for the 12 hour statewide bandh in protest against the fuel hike which was backed by BJP, AUDF and many other parties and organizations. .
