It is likely to be expected to have transportation issue could while the markets & shops may stay open late on Tuesday in Ranchi and other parts of the state as the ruling JMM-Congress-RJD government has shown absolute support to the Bharat Bandh called by farmers’ against the new farm laws called upon.
On Tuesday, several political parties have shown support and staged a candlelight demonstration at Ranchi’s Albert Ekka, appealing to everyone to make the bandh a success.
Chief Minister Hemant Soren stirs up the situation and put on weight on the protest by announcing the JMM’s wholehearted support for Tuesday’s Bharat Bandh, the state police and district administrations are on high alert ensuring maintenance of law and order amid the raging pandemic.
The members of the transport and trade sectors in the state have so far distanced themselves from the strike, but many are in fear that they may be forced to close their shops, given the situation that the government is supporting the bandh.
In Jharkhand, farmers are yet to hit the roads on their own, but the Opposition, mainly Congress and Left parties, have been holding a series of protests over the last week.
Sources said that the bandh would not impact industrial units in Jamshedpur and Adityapur which adjoins Seraikela-Kharsawan district.
The coal sector has been exempted from the bandh, hence mining activity is expected to continue obstructing in Dhanbad. But attendance of workers might be lesser than usual.
