Bandh affects normal life in Assam

india Updated: Jul 14, 2006 09:48 IST

Normal life was affected in Assam on Friday due to a 12-hour state-wide bandh, called by a conglomerate of 21 organisations sympathetic to the ULFA.

Shops and business establishments, banks and education institutions remained closed while traffic on the national highways was thin.

Northeastern Frontier Railway sources said train running all over the state was normal.

Flight operations were also not affected, airport sources said.

People's Committee for Peace Initiatives, the 21-member conglomerate, called the bandh to protest against the recent killing of six ULFA cadres-- four in Meghalaya and two in Assam-- by the army were on and demanding a halt to army operations.
