Bharat Bandh: Life paralyzed in Uttarakhand

Normal life was paralyzed across Uttarakhand on Thursday in response to the day-long Bharat Bandh called by BJP and other opposition parties to protest the Centre's move decision to allow FDI in multi-brand retail, cap on LPG subsidy and hike in diesel price.

All shops, business establishments, schools, colleges and other private educational institutions remained closed in Dehradun, Haldwani, Haridwar, Udham Singh Nagar, Almora and Pithoragarh.

Commercial vehicles were off the roads while government transport services like Uttarakhand Transport Services avoided plying their buses fearing attacks from pro-bandh supporters.

Protestors burnt effigies of PM Manmohan Singh, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Union ministers to oppose the government's move in Dehradun, Haldwani, Kotdwar and Udham Singh Nagar towns.
