The last leg of the 48-hour nationwide strike called by major trade unions passed off peacefully here on Thursday.
Members of the Joint Committee of Trade Unions (JCTU) disrupted train services at Gulbarga Railway Station for a brief period. Members of different trade unions, led by president of Karnataka Pranta Raitha Sangha Maruti Manpade, squatted on tracks and stopped the Chennai-bound Mumbai Mail train for about 15 minutes.
The railway police persuaded the protesters to clear the tracks.
No untoward incidents were reported and no arrests were made. Another group of JCTU members led by All-India Trade Union Congress secretary Shoukat Ali Alur staged a protest near Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Chowk.
However, life remained unaffected in the city and other parts of the district. Shops and business establishments were open on Thursday.
The North Eastern Road Transport Corporation, which had suspended its city and mofussil services on Wednesday, resumed operations on Thursday.
All major cement factories in the district functioned normally.
