Normal life across the state was disturbed due to the ‘Bharat Bandh’ called by Congress against the increase of prices of fuel and essential commodities. Few vehicles were seen on the roads. Educational institutions, business establishments and markets remained closed.
It has been noticed that people remained indoors voluntarily. Even though several residents had supported yesterday’s bandh, they also expressed discontentment that the bandh affected their daily activities.
Workers of Moreh Congress Party Committee blocked the National Highway 102 at Ima kondong lairembi khubam Mathak area today. The bandh supporters placed tree branches and bamboos so that no vehicles can pass through the highway. A team led by OC, Moreh Police kept monitoring them so that unwanted incidents can be avoided. However, the vendors and shops at the bazaar area of Moreh town were exempted from the Bandh and kept opened as usual.
Bandh supports in Nambol sent back the ‘Go to Village’ programme team that was going towards Bishnupur. However, there was no sign of violence by bandh supporters across the state.
