The TDP-Left-sponsored nationwide bandh to protest the Government's "failure" to check price rise began in Andhra Pradesh this morning with Opposition activists holding protests across the state.
Leaders and workers of Opposition parties staged sit-ins in front of depots of Andhra Pradesh State Road
Transport Corporation (APSRTC) at Vijayawada, Visakhpatnam,and several other places.
Passengers had a tough time as APSRTC suspended its services at various places as a precautionary measure.
In Hyderabad, activists of TDP, CPI and CPI-M and their allies held protests in the city and urged the people to
take part in the bandh voluntarily.
APSRTC suspended some of its services in the city also causing inconvenience to many commuters and office-goers.
TDP Chief N Chandrababu Naidu, CPI State secretary K Narayana and his CPI-M counterpart B V Raghavulu would
participate in the protest later in the day.
No untoward incident has been reported so far from any part of the state.
