Complete bandh in Jammu over AIIMS issue halts city
4/25/2015 2:03:47 AM
Jammu, Apr 24: A day-long bandh in Jammu today hit the city's transport and business entities after various political and social groups called for a strike over the reported shifting of AIIMS from here to Kashmir Valley. The bandh was called by the Jammu Chambers of Commerce and Industry, and is supported by various political, social, transport and trade organisations of Jammu. Transport vehicles remained off the roads with private transport unions extending support to the strike. The passengers faced the grunt due to the strike as it became difficult for them to reach their destinations. The travellers coming to Jammu on various trains also faced difficulties as they were unable to find vehicles for the city. Shops and other business establishments along with some educational institutions remained closed in the heart Jammu. Meanwhile, no incident of violence or protest has been reported so far from any part of the region.

In districts like Samba, Kathua and Udhampur, the bandh call evoked a mixed response with no effect on the usual businesses. Today being the last working day of the Civil Secretariat in Jammu before the offices move to the summer capital of Srinagar, there was a thin ...
