Patna: Blaming the state government for the rise of prices of essential commodities, RJD on Tuesday called a Bihar bandh on January 28.

"The Nitish Kumar government is more responsible than the Centre for the price rise in the state and for that we have decided to observe a state-wide shutdown on January 28," party chief Lalu Prasad told reporters here.

The government, he said, must inform the people about the result of its anti-hoarding drive and also the action taken against the black marketeers.

He said the bandh would soon be followed by a 'Jail Bharo' agitation to put pressure on the Centre for arresting the price rise. The date for the 'Jail Bharo Abhiyan' would be announced later.

Prasad said he would also hold talks the Samajwadi Party and TDP among others to mobilise support for calling a 'Bharat Bandh' later on the same issue.
