Father-son duo dies as BJP-Cong workers clash in Rajasthan; 22 held
A clash broke out between the Congress and the BJP workers in Rajasthan’s Jaipur during Tuesday’s ‘Bharat Bandh’, which otherwise evoked a mixed reaction in the state with mandis closed but several shops open and transport services running.
Markets and business activities were partially affected at other places such as Kota, Jodhpur and Bikaner. Shops in a few towns in Bundi, Baran and Jhalawar were closed to support the farmer unions’ call for a nationwide strike against the Centre’s agri laws, while others were open as usual.
Roadways buses, trucks and mini buses were seen plying on the roads as well as auto-rickshaws and e-rickshaws.
