Highlight Story

Madhya Pradesh High Court on Monday issued notices to Bhartiya Janata Party and other political parties on a PIL filed by a social worker over the call for the day's bandh called by them.

The notices were issued by a bench of Justice Arun Mishra and Justice SC Sinho after taking cognisance of the PIL filed by one Satish Verma, who termed the strike call as unconstitutional and a violation of people's fundamental rights.

The day-long bandh called by the BJP and other parties protesting against the hike in petroleum prices was near total and largely peaceful in the state barring a few incidents when protesters forcibly tried to stop a couple of trains.
