Violence mars Assam bandh

A sting of untoward seems to have marred the statewide Assam bandh in protest against the Indo-Bangla land deal.         BJP leaders and workers have come out to the streets in many areas to enforce the bandh call. Some of the supporters staged protest by burning tyres on the streets. A section of the supporters disrupted the normal of traffic movement by pelting stones at the vehicles. In many places the BJP leaders and workers courted arrest for buring the effigies of prime minister and chief minister for striking the land deal with Bangladesh where Assam would have to shed hundreds of acres of land.
