Near total in Karimnagar

By Our Staff Reporter

KARIMNAGAR, NOV. 30. The Bharatiya Janata Party bandh in protest against `anti-people'

and `anti-farmer' policies of the State Government was near total in the district on Tuesday.

Shops, business establishments, petrol filling stations, cinema halls, educational institutions, banks and other commercial establishments were closed. The RTC operated normal services.

At a press conference here, the former Union Minister, Ch. Vidyasagar Rao, said the bandh was total in entire State. The bandh reflected the resentment against the Government for its policies.

The party district president, P. Sugunakar Rao, the town president, Ravinder Singh, the rythu wing president, B. Jagan Mohan Rao, the Mahila Morcha district secretary, G. Padma, and others were arrested when they tried to obstruct RTC buses. They were released later in the evening.

The agricultural market yard was closed due to the bandh. Agitationists demanded that the Government provide compensation to farmers who had committed suicide and a special package for distressed weavers.

Reports reaching here said the bandh was near total in other parts of the district. Party activists organised rail roko in Peddapalli and Ramagundam regions under the leadership of the State vice-president, G. Ramakrishna Reddy.
