Kolkata: The government employees worried as they have to go to office on the day of strike and prepare themselves at least two hours before they used to.
West Bengal had an impression of holding bandh on any issue. When she was in opposition she had called many ceasing bandh but avoiding those after she came in power. The ruling party governemnt announced extra buses and a day’s salary will be deducted if anyone remains absent on September 10 and will be showcaused in order to know the reason for remaining absent. So speding a holiday on Bandh is just a daydream now.
The situation of a bandh day has changed. Mindset of the government employees has been effected as buses, trams and other modes of transport will ply smoothly. More number of state-run buses will ply on the day of the bandh.
The insurance companies had agreed to extend insurance benefits up to Rs 75,000 against damage of cars and other vehicles within 72 hours if police complaints were registered within 24 hours.
INC has called Bharat bandh in protest of soaring price of fuel. To protest against the rising fuel prices and other anti-people policies of the Centre, Trinamool Congress will organise a protest march on September 10 but would not collapse a normal day. Such decison will effect homesick bengalis.
All state government offices will remain open on Monday and show-cause notices will be issued to the absent employees. Leave will be granted only on the grounds of hospitalisation and family bereavement, the government circular said.
