Bharat Band Evokes huge response in Raipur

Supporters come out to dominate streets early in the morning

Raipur.

Expressing intense disaffection with the ever escalating fuel prices, Congress workers and supporters of ‘Bharat Band’ on Monday found innovative ways to demonstrate against the failure of the Union government’s policies to curb rising prices. Some of the party workers rode horses and some ox-driven carts to push the point home that if things carried on any longer as they happen to be right now, then people would have to revert to old modes of transport like these.

The all India shutdown, against all prseictions, evoked good response in the very capital town of BJP ruled Chhattisgarh. It was supported by Chhatisgarh Chamber of Commerce. Most of the business establishments in the city closed their operations since the very morning today. Nothing seemed to move as usual too as most of the app-based cab services too went off the roads.

All senior Congress leaders approached residents and business houses in particular to support a wider mass interest. Some of the leaders rode horses and ox-driven carts to tell people that they might have to use these modes of transport soon if the union government failed to rise to the occasion and act fast.

Most of the schools and colleges too wore a desolate look as an undeclared closure was observed in them. Fuel outlets, malls, multiplexes and cinemas too remained shut down and were expected to start functioning only after 3 pm.

Private autos and taxis plying on the roads, too, were asked to stop there business for a day. However, milk and medical shops were kept out of the purview of this band and these shops were seen doingh brisk business all through the period of today’s band.

Interacting with press representatives, AICC General Secretary and in-charge of Congress matters in Chhattisgarh, PL Puniya claimed that the hutdown, called by Congress, has evoked spontaneous response against the failure of PM Narendra Modi’s government at the center to contain rising fuel prices for a long time. Schools, colleges, auto-rickshaw and bus operators have all lent their support to the all India shutdown.

Puniya also claimed that the entire nation has supported the call for band in a whole hearted manner. Business people have pulled down the shutters of their own accord. People have come out of their houses to support it. Rahul GAndhi, the President of All India Congress Committee has led this band from the front in New Delhi. The entire nation is feeling restive due to the lacklustre functioning of the ruling coalition at the center.

Bharat Band completely successful in Raipur

The shutdown was completely successful in the capital city of Raipur. While much lesser buses were seen plying on the roads than usual, most of the auto-rickshaws and cab operators too joined the shutdown call by remaining out of the roads. COngress workers and supporters came out in a road domination effort since 5 at the morning. They were seen forcing closure on shops and othe business establishments too.

Congress leader Vikas Upadhyay was seen active since 5 in the morning at Bus Stand, Railway Station, Telibandha Chowk, Jay Stambha, asking people to extend all support to the band called by Congress.

MLA Kuldeep Juneja of Raipur North was seen engaging people at Shankar Nagar, Lodhipara Chowk, Pandri.
