24

Chandigarh: Congress leaders and workers held protests across Punjab on Monday following the Bharat Bandh call given by the Congress party against the rising fuel prices.

The protests were held in Ludhiana, Amritsar, Jalandhar, Patiala, Bathinda, Ferozepur and other towns across Punjab.

The call for ‘Bharat bandh’ evoked little response in Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Haryana with most shopkeepers and private players continuing with business as usual.

In Chandigarh, some parts of Sector 27, 28 and 30 markets remained closed while the rest of the city was open.
