Opposition workers staged demonstrations in front of bus depots in many districts of Congress-ruled Andhra Pradesh on Monday as part of the nation-wide bandh called by NDA and Left to protest fuel price hike, disrupting bus services.
Bandh supporters staged demonstrations in front of some bus depots in Khammam, Nalgonda, Ranga Reddy and Kadapa districts of the state disrupting services of the Andhra Pradesh Road Transport Corporation, causing inconvenience to commuters, police said.
In Rajahmundhry, services of over 700 buses in nine depots have been cancelled as protestors stopped buses and organised agitations, a APSRTC official said.
However, train services in the state remained unaffected.
“No disruption has been reported so far. We have neither rescheduled nor cancelled any of the train services in the region,” the official spokesperson of South Central Railways said.
All schools, colleges and universities in the city remained closed. While banks will continue to function normally, petrol stations and cinema halls will remain shut till evening.
Meanwhile, the advanced supplementary SSC Board exam for Social Studies Paper-I scheduled on Monday has been postponed.
It will now be held on July 8, officials said.
Similarly all the examinations of Osmania University here, scheduled today have been postponed in view of the bandh.
Hyderabad City police Commissioner A K Khan said the situation in the city is peaceful and no untoward incident has been reported so far.
