Bandh disrupts normal life in Nagaland
Kohima: Normal life was Thursday disrupted in Nagaland due to a 12-hour bandh called by the Naga Students` Federation in support of their demand that the Centre detect and deport foreign nationals from the northeast.
All shops and business establishments in the capital town Kohima and commercial hub Dimapur remained closed while the bandh hit normal traffic on the road.
Attendance was thin in government offices, banks and other financial institutions across the state.
However, schools and colleges remained closed as government declared a holiday.
Vehicular traffic was disrupted and shops and business establishments downed shutters as the bandh began this morning.
The strike was part of North East Students Organisations (NESO) decision to impose bandh in all the north eastern states except in Assam demanding a concrete step from the Centre to detect and deport foreign nationals from North-East.
The NSF is a constituent body of NESO.
