Tamil Nadu bandh over Cauvery board passes off peacefully
Rail and road blockade, demonstrations, and impromptu rallies by the Opposition marked the shutdown in the state affecting normal life to some extent
The DMK-led opposition parties'' sponsored bandh demanding setting up of the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) was by and large peaceful and near total in Tamil Nadu on Thursday, barring stone-pelting incidents in some parts.
Rail and road blockade, demonstrations, and impromptu rallies by the Opposition marked the shutdown in the state affecting normal life to some extent. Police said stone pelting incidents were reported from places including Chennai, Vellore, Erode and Sivaganga.
A policeman was injured in Chennai in a stone-pelting incident, they said. In some regions like parts of Madurai district, the bandh evoked partial and mixed response. Although state-run transport corporation buses were operated, it witnessed a drop in services owing to support for the bandh from opposition-backed trade unions, including DMK''s LPF.
