Voice of Maharashtra

Strictly closed in some places and mixed response in others

The Mahavikas Aghadi government had called for a Maharashtra bandh today to protest the incident at Lakhimpur-Khiri, but opposition leader Devendra Fadnavis criticized the bandh as government terrorism. Asked if the incident was not government terrorism, Fadnavis said, "We fully support the Mahavikas Aghadi government and the Mahavikas Aghadi government for calling for the closure of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government on the issue of farmers and their right to justice."

In Buldhana district, which has been closed since morning, Mahavikas Aghadi activists in Varvat, the largest market in the district, were calling for the closure of the market. They forcibly closed the shop and locked the shopkeeper inside. When the police came and intervened, the activists of Mahavikas Aghadi and BJP workers started shouting slogans.

Shiv Sainiks in Mumbai suburbs responded spontaneously to the Maharashtra bandh announced today in protest of the Lakhimpur incident. Shiv Sena staged a march from Sakinaka Junction to Asalfa Metro Station. The march was led by Shiv Sena MLA Dilip Lande. Later, the procession reached Asalfa metro station and Shiv Sainiks blocked the road. Ghatkopar Andheri Link Road was blocked for some time. Due to this, there was a traffic jam on both the routes.
