Bangla bandh despite Trinamul muscle flexing

STOPPED: Esplanade in Kolkata wears a deserted look on Thursday afternoon during a day-long shutdown called by Communist  organisations opposing the alleged rigging during the just concluded civic polls in Bengal and against a Union government legislation that proposes to increase jail term for road mishaps by commercial drivers. BJP too joined in the bandh but only on the rigging issue.  The bandh evoked a near total response across Bengal, even as cadres of the ruling Trinamul Congress thrasing bandh supporters and forcing traders to open their shops in several parts of the state.
