Hudhud times: A union of traders in Maharashtra has objected to the state government calling a bandh tomorrow in protest against last week’s violence in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri where four farmers were among eight people killed.
The traders’ union in a statement today said they are only limping back to business after intermittent lockdowns amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the bandh would hit their earnings.
The Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi government comprising the Shiv Sena, Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party or NCP is supporting the bandh. In fact, the state government itself announced the bandh at a joint press conference of the three parties. https://www.hudhudtimes.com/
