A Bihar bandh has been called on Tuesday by Bharat Swabhiman Samiti(BSS), yoga guru Baba Ramdev's apolitical outfit, to protest against the midnight police crackdown on him and his supporters in New Delhi.


The bandh will be observed from dawn to afternoon and essential services like civil supplies and movement of ambulances carrying patients have been exempted from its purview, state unit BSS coordinator Ajit Kumar told reporters in Patna on Monday.

"We appeal to the people of Bihar to extend their all out support to make the bandh a success," he said, adding BSS had received overwhelming support from traders' organisations and the ruling NDA in the state.

BSS would carry on with fast and other peaceful agitational programmes to press for various agendas of the yoga guru, including bringing back black money stashed abroad. It would also launch a campaign among the people on the corruption issue, he added.
