Last Updated: Thursday, December 1, 2011 - 11:49

Patna: The dawn-to-dusk country-wide trade
bandh called by various trade unions evoked little response
in Bihar with shops in major markets remaining open.

However, many private schools remained closed as a
precautionary measure in view of the bandh which has been
called to protest against the Centre`s decision to allow 51
per cent FDI in multi-brand retail.

The ruling NDA in Bihar has extended support to the bandh
while Congress and LJP are opposed.

The bandh is so far peaceful, Director General of Police
Abhayanand said.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had said he would not allow
51 per cent FDI in multi-brand retail sector in Bihar.
