Mixed response to bandh in Goa
Panaji: The NDA-led bandh against diesel price hike, FDI in retail and cap on subsidised LPG evoked a mixed response in Goa, which is currently ushering in the ten-day Ganpati celebrations.
While markets remained partially closed, the private buses remained off roads since morning.
The bus stands wore a deserted look, but the markets registered considerable presence of the people.
With Ganesh Chaturthi, the biggest festival of the state, commencing yesterday, the people were seen buying commodities required for celebrations.
There was no untoward incident reported as bandh was not forced either by NDA or Left parties.
The state-run Kadamba Transport Corporation Limited (KTCL) was plying its buses on the regular routes.
