Itanagar bandh total, peaceful

Despite tough measures to foil the bandh, normal life remains totally disrupted following a 12 hour Itanagar bandh call on Monday. Called by the All Nyishi Youth Association, the bandh has evoked full response where vehicles, mostly, are refusing to ply on the streets. Shops and markets, schools and colleges have been remaining closed from the morning. 

Thin attendance of staff makes it difficult for banks and offices to ensure normal functionings.  With this bandh, the organization demands construction of 4-way lane road from Itanagar to Banderdewa, repeal of Arunachal Pradesh Unlawful Activities act 2014, construction of Green Airfield at Hollongi and others.

Notably, the district administration announced tough measures to foil the bandh. Calling it an illegal, the authorities threatened to take strict action against the enforcement of the bandh.
