ABVP Calls Dawn-to-Dusk Bandh in Bihar
In protest against state government’s move to establish a branch of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) in Kishanganj, ABVP has called a day-long bandh in the state, said media reports.
The shutdown commenced today morning amid tight security arrangements, and is largely peaceful till now according to officials, reports said.
Bandh has not affected the railway and other transport services and also vehicular movement, reports said, adding, shops are open in Patna.
Another reason for the bandh is the protest against the police lathicharge on ABVP activists near the secretariat police station last week.
ABVP’s call has the support of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) as well as the Bajrang Dal.
