Maharashtra is closed today
Maha Vikas Aghadi today (October 11, Monday) Maharashtra bandh in protest against Lakhimpur Khiri Violence in Uttar Pradesh. (Maharashtra Bandh) is invoked. The three parties associated with Maha Vikas Aghadi, Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena have appealed to the public to make the bandh successful. In this bandh, essential services, hospitals, medical stores have been kept separate. On 9 October, the spokespersons of the three parties called for this bandh in the Journalists’ Council. Since the three parties calling for the bandh are running the government together, it was clarified that the bandh has not been called by the Mahavikas Aghadi government but by the three parties.
BJP and Raj Thackeray’s party MNS have announced to oppose the bandh. It has been said from the BJP that these Tighadi Aghadi have done the work of Mahishasur by calling for a bandh on the occasion of Navratri. BJP MLA Ashish Shelar has said that, ‘Bandh and protest are their business, they collect people and then ask for donations’. BJP leader Nitesh Rane said that BJP workers will support the traders who want to open shops. Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council Praveen Darekar said that where was Mahavikas Aghadi when farmers opened fire in Maval? The government is abusing its power. All APMC markets (market societies) are closed. Traders want to open shops and the people of the government come and appeal to them to close and the traders have to close under pressure.
What started and stopped in Mumbai- Thane?
Apart from the essential services in Mumbai, the Mumbai local train is running at full capacity, but it is necessary to complete the vaccination for traveling in the local train. The difference is visible in the transport of BEST buses. Due to this, the passengers leaving the house are facing problems. An incident of vandalism has come to light in eight BEST buses in Mumbai. The best bus drivers have demanded the government to make arrangements for the security of the bus. BEST employee organizations are also supporting the bandh so BEST bus service is slow.
An important news for the people living around Mumbai-Thane is that the APMC market of Navi Mumbai is closed today. From here vegetables are supplied around Mumbai-Thane.
